Why Is Bill Murray Coming To Cooperstown?
Caddy Shack, Ground Hog Day, Ghostbusters (and the list goes on and on) superstar Bill Murray is coming to Cooperstown, and it has nothing to do with baseball.
According to the Glimmerglass website:
it's in a one-night-only program of chamber music and literature with cellist Jan Vogler, pianist Vanessa Perez, and violinist Mira Wang. Performed in sold-out ngagements at Carnegie Hall and Chicago’s Symphony Center, the program may include selections from Bach and Schubert to “America/I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story and Van Morrison’s“ When Will I Ever Learn to Live in God?” as well as readings from Walt Whitman and James Fenimore Cooper.
All Otsego.com says “New Worlds” will feature Murray singing and reading, including such selections as “It Ain’t Necessarily So” from “Porgy and Bess,” performed as part of this year’s Festival. New Worlds stems from Murray and Vogler’s curiosity in each other’s artistic worlds and mixes the two together.
New Worlds is almost sold out, and tickets that are still available via www.glimmerglass.org range from $125-$185. For more information call (607) 547-2255.
We bet Bill will hit the links at the famous Leatherstocking Golf Course, and who can blame him?
