About Stanford Live
Stanford Live is Stanford University's performing arts presenter and producer.
We are committed to sharing and advancing the art of live music, dance, theater, and opera. We unite celebrated and emerging artists with the Stanford campus and greater Bay Area communities in a broad range of experiences that engage the senses and emotions, stimulate minds, and enrich lives. We value artistic vitality, learning, and an inclusive community. Our work includes the presentation of performances, artist residencies, faculty and student engagement, and commissions and premieres of new works.
Stanford Live includes a wealth of collaborators and partners, including Stanford academic departments and individual faculty members, Stanford students, off-campus arts institutions, and community organizations. Crucially, Stanford Live supports the university’s focus on placing the arts at the heart of a Stanford education.
The purpose of the Stanford Live Advisory Council is to support the mission of Stanford Live, and to provide strategic advice on programmatic goals and vision, financial sustainability, communications and marketing, development goals and strategies, community outreach and education, and the overall arts branding at Stanford University.

Stanford Live’s home is Bing Concert Hall, which opened in January 2013 and is transforming the practice, study, and experience of the performing arts on the Stanford campus. In addition to Bing Concert Hall we present performances all over campus, including at Memorial Auditorium, Memorial Church, and Frost Amphitheater.
The Arts on Campus
Stanford's academic arts units present dozens of performances throughout the school year. Consult these organizations for additional opportunities to experience the performing arts on campus.
