Stars tapped for Kennedy Center honors

Artists feted for cultural contributions

Mikhail Baryshnikov, Chuck Berry, Placido Domingo, Clint Eastwood and Angela Lansbury will be honored by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The stars will be saluted at the Kennedy Center Opera House Dec. 3, at a ceremony attended by a crowd that will include President Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Three of the five are foreign-born. Baryshnikov was born in Russia, Domingo hails from Spain and Lansbury was born in Britain.

“We honor an artist whose name is synonymous with dance at its most sulime, a musician who revolutionized American popular music, one of the greatest and most popular singers that the world of opera has ever produced, a film icon equally brilliant in front and behind the camera and a beloved actress who has conquered the worlds of film, theater and television,” Kennedy Center chairman James Johnson said.

Johnson said the artists are being honored for their “unique and extremely valuable contributions” to the cultural life of America.
