Stanford University has announced partnerships with The San Francisco Symphony and Goldenvoice to help support the newly renovated 8,000-seat Frost Amphitheater with quality events and performances. Stanford Live will reopen the amphitheater this summer with three performances from SF Symphony; including one with conductor Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT).

“We have found two wonderful collaborators in Goldenvoice and the San Francisco Symphony,” said Chris Lorway, executive director of Stanford Live/Bing Concert Hall. “Both are committed to bringing the highest level of musical experiences to audiences which aligns beautifully with our mandate at Stanford Live. These annual concerts and events will also provide Stanford an opportunity to engage further with the local community as we collectively build Frost into the preeminent outdoor music venue on the peninsula.”

The first summer concert kicks off with SF Symphony on July 10th. MTT leads an all-Tchaikovsky program featuring Symphony No. 4, and a Violin Concerto performed by Gil Shaham. Two additional shows are scheduled for July 13th and 14th with Conductor Gemma New leading the SF Symphony, Chorus, and soloists in concerts featuring Beethoven’s epic Ninth Symphony.

Tickets to all three shows will be available to the general public on February 26th at 10am.

All performances co-presented by Stanford Live and Goldenvoice, tickets will be available for purchase through the AXS ticketing system.

The first show for the season from Goldenvoice is announced – tickets go on sale, Thursday, February 14th at 10am – Jorja Smith & Kali Uchis, Saturday, May 18th, 2019 at 6pm.
