Stanford Live 2017-18 season
Stanford Live, Stanford University's major performance-promotion organization, has announced plans for its 2017-18 season, the first full season with Executive Director Chris Lorway at the helm. Among the 65 planned performances in a variety of media are several nods to Lorway's Canadian heritage, with notables from Canada including political-comedy superstar Samantha Bee, indigenous folk singer Buffy Sainte-Marie and a Canada Day celebration in honor of the nation's 150th birthday in the Stanford Live lineup. Other highlights of the event-packed season (including over the summer), will be legendary singer Darlene Love, the Arturo O'Farrill Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra with Dr. Cornel West, soprano Renee Fleming, writer Chuck Klosterman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Taylor Mac's epic "A 24-Decade History of Popular Music," produced in conjunction with San Francisco's Curran Theater.
Subscriptions for the new season will go on sale to renewing subscribers on May 20 and to the general public on June 1. Single tickets will go on sale June 8.
