Dr. Charles Sink
University of Michigan Musical Society


Starr enjoyed a cordial relationship with Dr. Charles Sink, president of the University of Michigan Musical Society for many years. Because Dr. Sink liked Starr the man and because heremembered what the Commonwealth had done for his nephew, he often invited his friend to concerts at HillAuditorium. Soon he added Starr’s student driver to the guest list, then a few of hiscompanions, and finally a sizable contingent of Starr boys. The numbers who first encountered excellence in music at these programs mounted until Dr. Sink’s retirement.
