Opening in January of 2013 Bing Concert Hall will transform the practice, study, and experience of the performing arts on the Stanford campus.

360° Intimacy

Bing Concert Hall’s 844 seats are arranged in a “vineyard” format, with seating sections ringing the stage. What’s more, the center-section seating begins on the same level as the stage. The result is a concert experience of unparalleled intimacy, offering exquisite sightlines from all angles and a rare conjoining of artists and audience.

A Nexus of Campus & Community

The hall and its 2,300-sq. ft. studio facilitate the practice, teaching, and study of the performing arts, integrating performance and curriculum for students while engaging with the Bay Area community.

Architects & Acoustics

Bing Concert Hall’s award-winning architecture firm, Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek Partners), designed Zankel Hall at New York’s Carnegie Hall, among many other acclaimed performing arts venues. Ennead’s additional Stanford projects include Cantor Arts Center, Stanford Law School, and the forthcoming (2014) Anderson Collection at Stanford University. The lead acoustician of Bing Concert Hall is Dr. Yasuhisa Toyota of Nagata Acoustics, a legend in his field whose projects include Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles, CA), and New World Symphony Soun

Amenities & Access

Complementing the artistic experiences at Bing will be a suite of facilities and services designed to make the total performance experience as enjoyable as possible—from plentiful parking and customer-service areas to spacious restroom facilities, two refreshment areas, and a picturesque foyer that opens onto a lovely veranda. Wheelchair and companion seating is available at every ticket price level.
