Stanford Live will launch a six-week in-person performance series at the Frost Amphitheater on July 1. The majority of performances will be jazz and classical concerts, although mariachi, Bollywood classics, family programming, and comedy shows are included. The series will be presented in partnership with SFJAZZ and the San Francisco Symphony.
The first weekend includes a performance by saxophonist Joshua Redman and tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, a live version of “The New Negroes” by Comedy Central (premiered by Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle), and Kronos Quartet, starring oral artists from Meklit and the Bay Area. .
“We are incredibly fortunate to have an outdoor venue like Frost that allows us to welcome the public once again as we cautiously exit the pandemic,” said Chris Lorway, executive director of Stanford Live.
There will be a concert every Thursday, with lineup including Gregory Porter, Fantastic Negrito, Robert Glasper and Terrace Martin, Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers and more.
The SF Symphony will also be performing a residency at Frost, starting July 10.
Tickets for all performances will be available through Stanford Live and sold in socially distant pods with two, four and six seats. Tickets will be available online at jelly.com amphitheater up to 30 minutes after the show time.
A presale for the July concerts will be available to select Stanford Live members from June 7, followed by a public sale from June 11. The August performances will go on sale in July. Tickets start at $ 25.
