Acclaimed theater, film, and opera director Nicholas Hytner will deliver the commencement address; you can find out more about him and the four other honorary degree recipients in the cover story of this month’s Journal.

As part of an ongoing exploration of Juilliard connections to the military, The Journal spoke with directing alum John Farmanesh-Bocca about how Shakespeare and Socrates, among others, tackled war as a theme, and how their stories remain relevant.

Also this month, The Journal features a special section commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, including dispatches students wrote from the fronts, a tribute to Tuskegee Airman and Juilliard percussionist LeRoy Battle (pictured at left), and more.
