Higher Ground,” a student-created musical, will debut this Saturday, March 1, at 7 p.m. in Dinkelspiel Auditorium. This musical seeks to establish the legacy of gospel music through a powerful synthesis of student actors, choreographers from Stanford’s dance department, the student a capella group Talisman, a choir from San Jose and deep historical research.
Winfrey spent Thursday touring the University with two students from her Leadership Academy for Girls, which she founded in South Africa in 2007. Winfrey was spotted around campus taking pictures with Stanford undergraduates and being serenaded by the student a capella group Talisman.
This past Sunday, one particular group starred in and hosted a collaborative event, and the lucky audience got to be amazed not only by the talent of Urban Styles, Stanford’s student-run contemporary jazz and lyrical group, but also guest performances from other artists around campus.
