Wynton Marsalis to receive National Humanities Medal

Add another award to the portfolio of Wynton Marsalis: the New Orleans trumpeter and composer will be awarded a National Humanities Medal next week in a White House ceremony hosted by President Barack Obama.

While Marsalis won't be at the ceremony ? he's playing a concert at New York's Rose Theater that night ? *it's an accolade he can add to his 1997 Pulitzer Prize for Music and several Grammy Awards. Marsalis is currently the director of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in New York.

Eleven other people will receive the medal that night, and the event will be livestreamed on the White House website.*
