Since its inauguration in January 2013, over 200,000 people have experienced some the world's greatest artists at Stanford University's Bing Concert Hall. Join us in the 2016-17 Season as we celebrate Stanford Live's fifth season in this unique space.

With its expansive public spaces, informal elegance, and shimmering sound, Bing Concert Hall—home of Stanford Live—is unsurpassed in the Bay Area. A superbly crafted performance platform, a convivial atmosphere, and inviting gathering spot, the Bing, by design, is intimately accessible and grandly memorable.

Its 842 seats envelope the stage—none of which are farther than 75 feet away—bringing the first row very nearly toe-to-toe with the artists. Bing Concert Hall is a showcase for an array of performance styles—a seamless integration of architecture, acoustics, and technology. It’s no wonder the New York Times called it “the envy of any big city.”
