Music at Stanford

Just a reminder that if you're within hailing distance of Palo Alto, Stanford University offers many, many musical performances by a wide variety of performers. There's Stanford Lively Arts, which presents a wide variety of theater and music by internationally famous artists. The Stanford Music Department puts on faculty and student performances of solo and chamber music recitals, orchestral concerts, and choral programs, all at an extremely high level and all at bargain prices. Here are a couple of upcoming examples, plus some information about how you can find out what's going on at Stanford.

This is a tempting chorus concert, with a fascinating selection of composers:

Stanford Chamber Chorale: "Remember"
Saturday, Nov. 13, 8:00 pm
Memorial Church
Stephen M. Sano conducts this evening of a cappella choral repertoire
featuring the theme of memory, remembering, and remembrance, with works by
Farrant, Berger, Howells, Finzi, Pearsall, Delius, Barber, Moran,
Mantyjarvi, Chihara, Hamilton, Daley, and Chatman. | Stanford Ticket Office
General $10 | student $5 | senior $9.

You might know Scott St. John's name, because he is the second violinist of the St. Lawrence String Quartet. George Barth teaches piano and does research into 19th century piano performance practice and history. He's a terrific player, and I'm sure this will be a great concert.

Scott St. John, violin, and George Barth, piano

Campbell Recital Hall
Two of the Department of Music¹s faculty collaborate in this recital, with
