Three Juilliard alumni are among the inaugural group of six performing arts notables who have been chosen for induction into Legends at Lincoln Center: The Performing Arts Hall of Fame. Yo-Yo Ma (Pre-College '71; Professional Studies '72, cello), Audra McDonald (BM '93, voice), and Leontyne Price (Special Studies '52, voice) will have their names integrated into the paving stones on Josie Robertson Plaza accompanied by a unique marker that, when scanned with a mobile device, will give patrons access to interpretive content and stories about the artists. (The other inductees are Louis Armstrong, Plácido Domingo, and Harold Prince.) Proceeds from the induction ceremony gala will benefit Lincoln Center and all 11 of its resident organizations. The Hall of Fame, Ma said in a Lincoln Center press release, "not only celebrates the performing arts but also pays tribute to the extraordinary vision, dedication, and contributions of those who founded this great cultural center."
