The Count Basie Center for the Arts today (September 29) unveiled its long-awaited second performance venue: The Vogel.

The Basie Center announced The Vogel would begin hosting performances in mid-October. This will give the Basie an opportunity to create revenue after the 7-month closure due to COVID-19.

“The Vogel represents four years of imagining how a new performance space could complement our historic theater,” said Adam Philipson, President / CEO, Count Basie Center for the Arts.

The Vogel is part of the Basie’s storied expansion and is nearly a 20,000 sq. ft. two-level performance space. It will debut with strict social distancing measures in place.

The Vogel’s first performances will be announced shortly. For more on the venue, visit
