Bing Concert Hall
Bing Concert Hall is transforming the practice, study, and experience of the performing arts on the Stanford campus.
Bing Concert Hall’s 842 seats are arranged in a “vineyard” format, with seating sections ringing the stage. What’s more, the center-section seating begins on the same level as the stage. The result is a concert experience of unparalleled intimacy, offering exquisite sightlines from all angles and a rare conjoining of artists and audience.
