Stanford Live, a major university presenter reaching 38,000 audience members annually through a diverse program of performing arts events, has undergone a series of changes in the last two years. These include a name change, major artistic and executive leadership shifts, and the opening of the Bing Concert Hall, an 842-seat, state-of-the-art facility on the Stanford campus. With the modest size of the new hall, and many performances selling out, the organization is looking at ways to make programs more accessible to students and the local community. Renewed support would help the organization increase the presentation of international artists, develop its local K-12 education programs, and develop technology as a tool to reach new audiences.
