Support Community Gathering at Uncorked
It’s a simple premise—a weekly wine tasting sponsored by the Center and featuring live performances by local musicians on selected dates. But Krannert Uncorked has become so much more than that, and now you can keep it going strong by contributing to our new Access for All campaign.
Krannert Center fulfills the multifaceted roles of classroom, laboratory, and public square. The educational mission is ever-apparent in the shops and classrooms utilized by over 600 students each day, as well as in the way performance experiences open minds and hearts. The Center’s shops and classrooms, along with its theatres, also function as laboratories—for faculty, staff, students, and visiting artists (including for over 100 commissioned pieces, creative residencies, and world premieres since 1969). It’s the third role—of public square—that is apparent at the welcoming, eclectic, gathering events in the Lobby and at Stage 5 such as Krannert Uncorked, which takes place almost every Thursday from 5-7pm. Yet to come this semester, patrons can experience the music of the CU Jazz Festival featuring the Brian Stark Quartet, Lauren Turk, and more.
