Founding Grant Society Concert

February 2014

More than 400 Stanford alumni and friends gathered at the Bing Concert Hall in February 2014 for a special concert held for Founding Grant Society members. Stephen Sano, chair of the music department and the Harold C. Schmidt Director of Choral Studies, spoke about the hall's construction and Stanford's growing arts district. Guests also enjoyed musical performances by the St. Lawrence String Quartet and the Talisman singers, a student a cappella group. The Founding Grant Society was created to honor and thank those who plan to leave a legacy for the university through their bequests and other planned gifts.
