Our Organization

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.


  • 140+ performances each season
  • 62,200+ attendees annually from the Peninsula and greater Bay Area
  • Over 35 programs annually engaging with Stanford students, including masterclasses, workshops, and talks
  • 115 hours of K-12 education programs annually
  • Five venues on the Stanford University campus (Bing Concert Hall, the Studio, Frost Amphitheater, Memorial Auditorium, Memorial Church)
