Do you you know that if you are attending events at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts (aka Krannert or KCPA) we've got guides to help you learn more about the groups and pieces being performed?
Each month we publish a guide to that month's dance, music, and theatre performances, linking to scores, audio and video recordings, and books that will prepare you for the experience or teach you more about what you've already heard.
From the main KCPA Guides page, you can select a particular month from the list.
Once you've selected a guide, you can choose a tab for the performance you are interested in.
Each tab will include details of the event, a video clip if one is available, featured items in the MPAL collection, and links to more materials in our collection about the performers and art forms.
Occasionally we will include helpful links to information outside of the Library as well.
Each monthly guide has a welcome tab that points you to logistical information about using our Library and checking things out, and also has a tab titled "Attending a Performance" that offers resources to help you increase your listening/viewing enjoyment and concert-going tips.
The goal of these Music and Performing Arts Library guides is to help you Uncover and Discover the great resources in our collections that can increase your enjoyment and understanding of the performances at KCPA.
