STANFORD —Stanford Live announced over ten additional performances happening this fall. Tickets are now on sale.
New Mainstage Performances: Jazz musician Jon Batiste (Nov. 2) makes a return visit to Bing Concert Hall. Known for his role as Bandleader and Musical Director on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Batiste’s presence also extends beyond the screen—he’s a GRAMMY award-winning musician, an artistic visionary, and a philanthropist committed to mentoring young musicians. Also added to the calendar is Mongolian-Chinese rock band Hanggai (Sep. 28), whose rise to fame began on the Chinese talent show Sing My Song, and Trey McLaughlin & The Sounds of Zamar (Oct. 1) who will bring their rich gospel harmonies to Memorial Church.
New Bing Studio Cabaret Performances: Bing Studio’s cabaret series will host comedian Jesus Trejo (Sep. 28); jazz drummer Allison Miller (Nov. 15); and jazz vocalist Alicia Olatuja (Nov. 16), the featured soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at Barack Obama’s second inauguration. Terry Riley (Oct. 19), the composer responsible for the rise of the minimalist movement, will be joined by his son, award-winning classical guitarist Gyan Riley. Performances from rising-vocalists Lucibela (Sep. 27) and Nella (Nov. 14) pay homage to their roots and the regional folk traditions of their homes. Stanford Live also announced Musica Nuda (Nov. 17), the Italian duo known for their stripped-down fusions of sound and genre.
New Frost Amphitheater Performance: As part of the Stanford Live & Goldenvoice series at Frost Amphitheater, iconic music force Willie Nelson (Oct. 12) takes the stage with his son Lukas Nelson.
