Sinatra Chair

Santa Clara welcomes actor and activist BD Wong as the 2021-22 Frank Sinatra Chair in the Performing Arts.

Actor and activist BD Wong joins the SCU community as the 2021-22 Sinatra Artist-in-Residence.

Wong is an Tony award-winning actor of screen and stage, activist for Asian-American and LGBTQ+ rights, and author of a moving memoir on queer parenthood.

For three distinct residency weeks following the three main quarters of the school year, Wong will give private and public performances, participate in conversations with the artists and scholars of the Mission campus, and join classes as a learner and a teacher.

The chair is funded by the proceeds of the 14th Annual Golden Circle Theatre Party, which Sinatra headlined. Former Sinatra chairs include Rhiannon Giddens, Taye Diggs, W. Kamau Bell, Anna Deavere Smith, and Silk Road Ensemble.
