URBANA, Ill. (WCIA)- The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts will not be opening its doors to the public this fall, and Covid-19 has impacted that decision. Officials decided they aren’t willing to take the risk for in-person public performances. A few of the groups that weighed in on the decision were the school of music, lyric theater, and dance at Illinois.

Doors will still be open to students, advertising director Bridget Lee-Calfas said you’ll still be able to catch the show online. ” The reason we are providing online content is to continue a meaningful connection to the center and hopefully, help people to still feel some type of normal that people usually feel for live performances” Decisions have not been made about whether or not they’ll have performances in the spring, and they’ll discuss that at a later date.
