Stanford Live presents a wide range of the finest performances from around the world fostering a vibrant learning community and providing distinctive experiences through the performing arts. With its home at Bing Concert Hall and Frost Amphitheater, Stanford Live is simultaneously a public square, a sanctuary, and a lab, drawing on the breadth and depth of Stanford University to connect performance to the significant issues, ideas, and discoveries of our time.
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 advice on the strategic direction of the organization.

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.
