EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Symphony Orchestra Music Director Riccardo Muti will deliver the address at Northwestern University’s spring commencement. And the school plans to honor Stevie Wonder at the ceremony.

The university said Friday that Muti will deliver the June 20 address at the school’s Ryan Field. He will also receive an honorary degree from Northwestern.

Stevie Wonder will be among four other people who will receive honorary degrees at the ceremony. The others are actress Cloris Leachman, economist Richard Easterlin and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Director Sara Bloomfield.
