Legendary actor Bill Murray and sensational musician Jan Vogler are bringing a one of a kind show to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall!
Jan Vogler was born in Germany in Berlin (East Germany) in 1964 and is a classical cellist. He began his musical journey at the age of 6 by learning to play the cello. He was first taught by his father and then by the veteran German cellist Josef Schwab. Jan went on to become the principal cellist of Dresden Staatskapelle (one of Europe's oldest orchestras, renowned for its unique sound and high standard of performance) when he was just 20 years old. He left the orchestra in 1997 and moved to New York City to pursue a solo career. Since then, he's released 10 albums and performed (as a soloist) with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Vienna Symphony Orchestra. He's received many accolades including 2 ECHO Klassik Awards (for Instrumentalist of the year: Cello and Chamber Music Recording of the Year) and an Erich-Kästner-Preis (Dresden). Bill and Jan's show (titled New Worlds) features the latter playing the cello while the former reads works by writers like Walt Whitman and Ernest Hemingway (and also occasionally sings).
