Faculty and Staff Day

With the Opening Weekend in high demand, there will be a special “Faculty and Staff Concert” as a way for the campus community to experience the hall.  All employees are invited to attend this free lunchtime Department of Music concert on Tuesday, January 15 at 12 pm.

Reserve tickets for this event on the Stanford Live website or pick them up at the Ticket Office beginning November 27 with a valid faculty/staff SUID.  Limit is two tickets per employee and IDs will be required at the door.

Note that Stanford and faculty and staff receive a 20% discount on all performances.
