After Stanford affiliate offers gripping testimony of assault, Supreme Court nominee remains unswerving in denial

In diametrically opposed but equally emotional testimony, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Bay Area-based and Stanford-affiliated research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford, faced off in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The explosive hearing, in which senators questioned Ford and Kavanaugh for almost nine hours in total, will play an important role in the votes of key senators in the Senate-wide confirmation vote scheduled for Friday.

Testimony: Faith, friendship and music

The last Testimony show was just like any other a capella performance on campus: bright-eyed students wove together a narrative with silly skits and intermittent songs, blending their voices to create harmonious arrangements of popular and traditional melodies. The only major difference was that one of the group members began by leading the audience in prayer.

Multifaith Melodies

Stanford’s Raagapella a capella group performed in the Old Union Courtyard Monday night as part of a Multifaith Concert. The concert, a capstone event to President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, also featured performances from Testimony, Stanford Gospel Choir, STAMP and other singing groups.
