Bill Murray has been a pretty popular guy lately. From being awarded the Mark Twain Prize for Humor last year, to watching and willing his beloved Cubs to win the World Series and sing-alongs with Eddie Vedder, starting his own line of golf clothing and announcing the upcoming opening of a Caddyshack-themed bar in his hometown, the comedian has been busy being awesome and we’re all the better for it.
Now, Murray will be taking his uncanny ability to make everything happier somehow to Toronto, where he will headline the Royal Conservatory’s 2017-2018 opening gala at Koerner Hall on October 13th.
Described as an “evening where music and literature meet in a clash of words and notes,” Murray will be treating those in attendance to readings of literary works by Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote and Mark Twain. He will dance a tango and sing as well.
Murray will be joined by his friend, cellist Jan Vogler, who will lead an ensemble through musical pieces by Bach, Piazzolla, Ravel and Bernstein. Check out video of Murray performing with Vogler below for a taste of what you can expect if you head to the Toronto performance.
