Stanford students enjoy many opportunities to deepen their experiences of the performing arts.

In addition to providing reserved, subsidized tickets exclusively for Stanford students, Stanford Live offers workshops and master classes, residence-hall performances and discussions, open rehearsals, and programs that put students onstage with professional artists. 

Subsidized tickets

Stanford Live’s commitment to the campus community includes reserving a limited number of student seats for all performances priced as low as $15, even those that no longer have tickets available to the general public. To purchase these subsidized student tickets, call 650.724.BING (2464) or visit the Bing Concert Hall Box Office at 327 Lasuen Street from 12-5 PM Tuesday - Friday. Student tickets can also be purchased online

Stanford Live Opening Acts allows Student Curators to program short performances by student ensembles that “open the show” for select events at Bing Concert Hall (to be announced). Students will also take the stage in Bing Studio Sessions: A Student Cabaret and The Next Bing Thing on our main stage in spring 2014.

Stanford Live welcomes the 2013–14 student curators, who will be programming opening acts for select performances in the coming season, and our performance intern, who is programming our new Bing Studio Cabaret series. Stay tuned for more details.

Do you want to influence the main stage programming at Stanford Live? Become a student ambassador! Each year, Stanford Live Ambassadors (SLAms) represent the campus voice at Stanford Live and Bing Concert Hall. They meet once per month and communicate by email to share thoughts on programming concerts and student incentives. Subcommittees plan and produce special events such as The Next Bing Thing (an annual student showcase) and periodic post-concert parties specifically for students at the Bing.
