Compose Your World

Classical violinist Kai Kight, ’14, shares how Stanford pushed him to enjoy the beauty within the moment and to combat criticism that comes from within.

Kai Kight, ’14, is a violinist, composer and 2013 Mayfield Fellow in the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. As a musician, Kai has performed his original music for thousands of people in venues across the world - from the White House to the Great Wall of China. As a speaker, he has created impactful experiences for audiences at conferences, companies and universities internationally. Some of his clients include The Walt Disney Company, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks. His mesmerizing and original violin performance beautifully becomes a sonic metaphor for the core of his message: to inspire people to compose unique ideas in a world that celebrates conformity.

This Stanford+Connects micro lecture was filmed on location at Stanford University. Stanford+Connects is a program of the Stanford Alumni Association.
