Presenting Paul Hindemith’s When lilacs last in the door-yard bloom’d (text by Walt Whitman).

Sat April 29 (8 PM) and Sun April 30 (7:30 PM).

Location: Mills Concert Hall, Mosse Humanities Building

A rarely done work because of its difficulty, this is an outstanding setting of Walt Whitman’s poem written about the death of Abraham Lincoln, and the train that carried his body to Springfield, Illinois. The work was commissioned by Robert Shaw in memory of Franklin Roosevelt, whose funeral train carried his dead body from Georgia back to Washington. The work is in memory of “those we loved.”

36th Annual Crazylegs Classic

8k Run • 2 Mile Walk
Saturday, April 29th, 2017 • 10:00 a.m. (CST)
Madison, Wisconsin

Not surprisingly, the idea was hatched over a couple of beers in late 1981 by three Badger loyalists at a campus bar. The three, Tom Grantham, Ken Sparks, and Rich Backus, wanted to raise money to support UW Athletics. As admirers of then- Athletic Director Elroy Hirsch, they asked his permission to name it the "Crazylegs Run" in his honor. Tom Grantham continues to serve as General Chairman on the Crazylegs Classic Executive Committee....

...The Crazylegs Classic has become a time-honored tradition of the University of Wisconsin, as well as a much anticipated event to kickoff spring in the Madison community. In honor of the 35th anniversary of the race in 2016, a list of 35 significant moments was created (click here to view).
