Everything and the Kitchen Sink

We are pleased to open our 2013-2014 season this weekend with a concert by Marty Balin, founder of Jefferson Airplane, hit song maker of Jefferson Starship and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame icon.  Marty's voice is still going strong, with Billboard hits "Miracles," "Hearts," "Atlanta Lady," and soundtrack classics "Comin' Back to Me," "Today," and "Volunteers."

So what's this "Kitchen Sink" thing?  Well, the Kitchen Sink Series is a series that gives patrons the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with artists in our Studio Theatre, a transformable space that seats about 300 and is located just below Sangamon Auditorium.

The name for the series came from the idea that the kitchen...and the kitchen a location in the home where the most thoughtful and intimate of ideas are exchanged.  We also like that the name invokes that the series includes a wide variety of artists; think of it as "everything...and the Kitchen Sink!" 

We also have our very own Kitchen Sink on site to remind you of the series name.  And our artists on the series have been so generous with their might just get the opportunity to be photographed with then and the Kitchen Sink.  
Auditorium Director Bob Vaughn and members of the eclectic musical trio, Time for Three.
Marty Balin's Kitchen Sink concert will be Saturday, September 21 at 8 p.m. For tickets to his concert or other Kitchen Sink events, call the Ticket Office at 217.206.6160 or visit the website.
