The Wilson Poffenberger event at Krannert was very fun. I think it is fun to be able to celebrate and be a part of The Krannert Center being around for 50 years. The people putting on the show were so interested and engaged which is nice to see people enjoying something on our campus. The atmosphere was so friendly and personal for this show. The classical pieces were amazing and the piano and saxophone went together so much better than I ever imagined.
UIUC’s own Poffenberger performed saxophone showpieces as the winner of this year’s music school competition.
