Frank Sinatra Artists-in-Residence


Grammy-winning singer and musician Rhiannon Giddens is this year's Frank Sinatra Artist-in-Residence. 

The Frank Sinatra Chair in the Performing Arts was established in 1980 with initial funds from the proceeds of the 14th Annual Golden Circle Theatre Party, headlined by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra Artists-in-Residence energize the arts at Santa Clara University, inspiring our students and bringing life to our mission in a way that is tangible: experiencing the reality and thinking critically about the world in order to emphasize and engage constructively. Previous Chairs include Taye Diggs, W. Kamau Bell, Anna Deavere Smith, and Silk Road Ensemble.
