Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif. is expanding its live entertainment offerings with two partners who will help program the university’s Frost Amphitheater. Stanford Live, the university’s performing arts organization, will co-present a concert series at the venue with Goldenvoice, which promotes more than 600 shows in Bay Area each year.
Stanford Live will also partner with the San Francisco Symphony to launch a new musical series beginning July 2019.
Chris Lorway, executive director of Stanford Live and Bing Concert Hall says the partnership “aligns beautifully with our mandate” and will “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 82-year-old Frost Amphitheater will reopen this spring after a renovation project that includes a new stage and front and back-of-house amenities. The Goldenvoice series will run from June to October.
“From Miles Davis to Ella Fitzgerald, and Carlos Santana to the Grateful Dead, Frost has hosted the best artists of its time, and the venue’s history serves as a musical blueprint that is hard to match anywhere in the world,” explains Rick Mueller, North American president of AEG Presents, Goldenvoice’s parent company, in a press release. “We look forward to continuing this great tradition and bringing the best artists of today to Frost with our partners at Stanford Live.”
