In response to domestic coronavirus developments, Stanford University is strongly discouraging all large-scale university gatherings, effective March 4 through May 15. Stanford Live, in compliance with the university’s decision, is moving to cancel large-scale performances within this time frame. This performance has been canceled—read more.

Everyone’s favorite down-to-earth explainer of all types of music returns to Stanford Live for three performances. In the first part of each performance, Kapilow illustrates key points of the music and its creators. Then, the full piece is performed with guest soprano Emily Albrink and musical theater vocalist Ben Jones. To top off the experience, Kapilow and the vocalists take part in a lively and in-depth Q&A with the audience.

In this evening at Bing Concert Hall, Kapilow explores the songs of iconic American composer and songwriter Cole Porter, whose musicals include Fifty Million FrenchmanAnything Goes, Silk Stockings, and more. His numerous hit songs include "Night and Day", "I've Got You Under My Skin", and "You're the Top." Many of his songs became standards noted for their wit and lyricism—but in the early-to-mid 1900s often ran into issues of censorship.

Each season, Rob Kapilow readily engages in our season themes, revealing directions we would never have thought of. His insight into how minimalism became a "culture war" between composers in the 1970s sets up a wonderful platform to examine works by John Adams, Steve Reich and post-minimalist Max Richter. In another take on culture wars, Kapilow takes us on a journey through mid-century moralism and censorship via the witty and sometimes risqué songs of Cole Porter.
