The Technion announced this week that it will award an honorary doctorate to Indian-born conductor of classical music Zubin Mehta in recognition of “his unique and historic contribution to the music world in general and in Israel in particular, and his prolonged devotion to Israel and its citizens.”

Mehta will receive the doctorate during the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s gala concert, led by 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureate Prof. Dan Shechtman, which will take place on Thursday. All proceeds from ticket sales will be dedicated to the welfare of the students at the Technion.
