Always great music for uncorked. Chardonnay and one beer were featured to sample. A married couple sang for 2 hours and I loved them. Also bought their cd. They were from Petersburg Illinois. It wasn't crowded. Krannert is a world renowned venue.

Krannert is home for the performing arts at the University of Illinois. The many theaters inside are also used for other events, such as conferences. There are so many great shows to see here. Classical music, jazz, comedy, theater.. all fun!

With a daughter in the U of I Dance program, we've seen many performances at Krannert. It is a really nice venue and have enjoyed every event attended. The lobby bar even serves top shelf drinks!

Krannert Center was built in the late 60s, but you'd never know it. Occupying an entire city block, it contains five theaters, a gift shop, and a small cafe. It has been home to MANY great performances, including Perelman, Stern, Bell, Galway, Ax, many opera...More
