Cornish to honor classical, dance leaders at graduation

Cornish College of the Arts will honor Virginia Johnson, artistic director of Dance Theatre of Harlem, and the members of the contemporary classical Kronos Quartet – David Harrington, John Sherba (violins), Hank Dutt (viola), and Jeffrey Zeigler (cello) – with honorary degrees this year, the school has announced.

“Dance Theatre of Harlem is a cornerstone in contemporary dance and Virginia Johnson inspired our students when she led a masterclass last fall,” said Nancy J Uscher, Cornish president, in a news release. “The Kronos Quartet, celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, demonstrates a fearless approach to their art that complements our equally adventurous graduates.” Kronos was founded in Seattle in 1973.

Cornish’s commencement will be May 12 at Benaroya Hall.
