2021–22 Season FAQ
As we continue to navigate this unprecedented year, we want to make sure you—our Stanford Live family—stay informed. Please check back as we will continue to update this page.
[Updated September 1, 2021]
The following policies are based on the current state, local, and university guidance we have available to us. We will let you know if things change as we may receive further guidance from state, county, and university officials on upcoming events.
Is proof of vaccination required to attend indoor events at Stanford Live?
In accordance with state, county, and university protocols, proof of vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test within the last 72 hours is required for entry to indoor events at Stanford Live (Bing Concert Hall, Bing Studio, Memorial Auditorium, Memorial Church).
Does my child need a negative COVID test to attend an event?
Children under 12 will need to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours prior to arrival onsite.
Are other health and safety protocols in place?
Masks are required for both unvaccinated and vaccinated patrons across all Stanford Live indoor venues. Patrons should bring their own face masks that cover their nose and mouth and must wear them at all times. Masks with valves will not be allowed.
Patrons should stay home if they are experiencing a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days, or have had close contact with anyone who is confirmed or is suspected of having COVID-19.
What is the capacity for shows during the 2021–22 season?
2021–22 season shows scheduled in the fall will be sold at full capacity. Information about winter and spring shows will be available later when tickets go on sale in the fall.
How can I purchase tickets for shows?
In order to best prepare for potential changes in light of COVID-19, only tickets to shows scheduled from September through December are currently available for purchase. The remaining events will go on sale in the fall. Tickets are sold in-person at the box office, online, and by phone. The box office is open Tuesday–Friday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. Orders may be placed online 24/7. If you need assistance, email email@example.com and our staff will respond as soon as possible.
Who needs a ticket and are discounts available?
All attendees, regardless of age, must have a ticket to attend a Stanford Live event. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Discounted tickets are available for Stanford University students and employees, including Stanford Hospital employees.
Do I have to wear a mask?
Masks are required for vaccinated and unvaccinated patrons for events at Bing Concert Hall, Bing Studio, Memorial Auditorium, Memorial Church, and all other indoor venues for Stanford Live performances during the 2021–22 season.
What if I have a ticket to a show but I'm not feeling well?
We are pleased to offer fee-free exchanges for all patrons until further notice for the 2021–22 season. If you are experiencing symptoms or have come into contact with anyone who is sick, please stay home. Your tickets may be exchanged to another performance equal or greater in price value scheduled in the same season (excluding Frost Amphitheater performances) or donated as a tax-deductible donation to Stanford Live.
