The National comes to Stanford Sunday for a 6:30 p.m. performance at Frost Amphitheater.

The National is scheduled to perform 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Stanford University’s Frost Amphitheater, 351 Lasuen St.

Both individually and collectively, The National’s members have been involved in countless artistic, charitable and sociopolitical pursuits. The band released “A Lot of Sorrow,” documenting its collaboration with installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson that took place at the Museum of Modern Art’s PS1, where the group performed its song “Sorrow” for six hours in front of a live audience.

The National is behind the Red Hot benefit albums “Dark Was the Night” and “Day of the Dead,” and the compilation boxed set “7-Inches for Planned Parenthood.” Band members have received a Golden Globe nomination for work on the score of the 2015 film “The Revenant,” founded or played a major part in MusicNOW, the Eaux Claires festival, the Haven Festival and Boston Calling, and participated heavily in both Barack Obama presidential campaigns.

The National’s five members are Matt Berninger (vocals), Aaron Dessner (guitar, bass, piano), Bryce Dessner (guitar, piano), Scott Devendorf (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

Tickets start at $60.
