Graduation Ceremony | Music Courtyard | May 17, 2002, 7 p.m.
Valencia, April 22, 2002 - California Institute of the Arts will present an honorary doctor of arts
degree to pianist and harpist Alice Coltrane during this year´s graduation ceremony on May 17.
President Steven D. Lavinc will make the award presentation at: 7 p.m. in CalArts´ Music Courtyard.
"This award is a celebration of Alice Coltrane´s extraordinary accomplishments as an artist," said Lavinc. "It´s our way of saying how much CalArts respects her and appreciates her visionary work."Coltrane´s eclectic musical explorations range from bebop and free jazz to classical orchestrations and Indianinflected devotional music. Born and raised in Detroit, she emerged as a bebop pianist in the early 1960s and later joined the quintet of her husband, jazz giant John Coltrane. She played a key role in the group´s radical free jazz experiments heard on Kulu Se Mama (1966), Meditations (1966), Expression (1967) and the concert recordings Live at the Village Vanguard Again! (1966) and Live in Japan (1966).

CalArts awards honorary degrees based on the recommendations of its Academic Council, which represents the entire faculty of the institute. Recent recipients have included artist Bruce Nauman, musician Ry Cooder, animator Faith Hubley and composer Steven Reich.
