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!

It is amazing how various types of international performing art can merge in this small university town, from Russian ballet to Chinese acrobatics, and to pop music concerts. We students can enjoy high-level drama and shows without traveling to large cities, and also at a...More

Krannert is a beautiful venue. My first time in this place was for my son's high school graduation. I have been here 8 years but never attended anything else. One bad thing was the bathroom locations. You really have to hunt for them. I kept...More
