For more than 50 years, singer Darlene Love has been making rock and roll’s world go ‘round. In the early 1960s, she was part of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound for “He’s a Rebel,” doing backing (as well as uncredited lead) vocals for “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby,” and scores of other hits. With the 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom, she became the best-known unknown in rock history. Joined for part of the program by the Stanford Symphony Orchestra, Love will fill the house with nostalgia and her timeless, soaring voice. 

The Friends of Music at Stanford present their annual holiday showcase in Memorial Church featuring the Stanford Chamber Chorale, members of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra, and organist Adrienne Kelly Lim. Featured will be Corelli's beloved Christmas Concerto; seasonal carols by Gjeilo and Rutter; and the choral-orchestral version of Fauré's haunting Pavane.

The Stanford Symphony Orchestra welcomes its new conductor, Paul Phillips! The SSO opens its 2017-18 season with music from France and Russia, along with a work by the acclaimed Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, a Helsinki native who has lived in Paris since 1982, bridging both musical worlds. Her "oceanic" tone poem, Ciel d'hiver ("Winter Sky"), beautifully complements Debussy's La Mer. Berlioz's Roman Carnival Overture and Tchaikovsky's "Rococo" Variations, performed by Concerto Competition winner Danna Xue, round out the program.

The annual Halloween Concert by the Stanford Symphony Orchestra and Stanford Wind Symphony will include music from Game of Thrones, The Wizard of Oz, Phantom of the Opera, and Hamilton, and more. Plus, the ever-popular Costume Competition, making this a concert you won't want to miss!
