MPAL wishes to acknowledge the Strategic Communications and Marketing Committee of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library, which provided support for this program.
Each tab represents a month of performances at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Each event page will provide you with suggestions of physical and online materials available via the Music and Performing Arts Library that can help you discover more about many of the featured artists and genres. Whether you are affiliated with the University or a community member interested in music and the performing arts, these resources are available for you to explore and use.
All Music and Performing Arts Library materials can be used in the Library. We have equipment to view/listen to all of the various media items in our collection, including CDs, LPs, and DVDs.
If you want to check something out, you will need a current UIUC I-Card or a courtesy card. Look here for more information about our lending policies.
