Internationally Renowned PianistVan Cliburn Rewarded Honorary Degree

The internationally renowned pianist Van Cliburn is being awarded an honorary degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Van Cliburn is regarded by many as one of the greatest pianists of all time, having performed for every President of the US since Harry
Truman, plus royalty and heads of state around the world.
       A little more about Van Cliburn: “With his historic 1958 victory at the first International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow at the height of the Cold War, Mr. Cliburn transcended politics by demonstrating the universality of classical music. The American-born pianist received a ticker-tape parade, the only time a classical
musician was ever honored with the highest tribute possible by New York City and was featured on the cover of Time magazine (May 1958) with the headline ‘The Texan Who Conquered Russia.’ He quickly became a household name to people of all ages and, most significantly, in homes with no previous connection to classical music.”He’ll be added to the list of Honorary Doctorates at CIM’s 87th Annual Commencement Ceremony Sat 5/19.
