Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Department of Music--
I am very proud to announce that Nick Cook (our current Lurcy Professor) will receive an honorary degree at the Spring Commencement. (Information on all five of the degree recipients is available online.) As most of you know, the University of Chicago only gives honorary degrees in recognition of exceptional contributions to scholarship, and we in the Department are ourselves honored to have Nick in our midst, and to have this opportunity to acknowledge with the entire university his manifold accomplishments. I hope to see many of you at this Spring's commencement on 15 June, which will (of course) also include the award of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees to students of the Department.
All the best
