A new Artistic Venture
by the Kurt Vonnegut
Museum and Library.

See below for general
information and
upcoming show

Kurt Vonnegut loved music – so much so that he said the following:

“If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:


Since its founding, the Vonnegut Library has hosted a number of musical and spoken word performances. These occasional performances will now continue under a new moniker:   the Vonnegut Sessions. We’ll host performers of a variety of musical genres, as well as spoken word readings of poetry, prose, short stories – and more.

 Seating for these shows is limited, and advance tickets are HIGHLY recommended. Tickets will be offered for sale without any additional fees via our secure website, and also in person at KVML.

We’ll charge affordable admission fees, set on a per-concert basis, that enable us to fairly compensate the artists who will share their talents with us. A portion of each ticket sold will be designated as a charitable donation to the Vonnegut Library’s Annual Fund that supports the daily operations of KVML. And, through the generous support of local supporting breweries, beverages will be available for purchase to those 21 and older. Proceeds from these beverage sales will go directly to our Annual Fund! The Vonnegut Sessions are open to all ages (with appropriate adult supervision). Children 15 years and under may attend at no charge with paid adult admission.

New shows will be added over time, so be sure to sign up for our e-mail list, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get announcements and access to tickets as soon as they become available.
