‘Kennedy Center Honors’ quintet of entertainment legends

For fans of the performing arts the Kennedy Center Honors — a joyous celebration of the lifetime achievements of artists in music, dance, theater, film, comedy, and television — is a dependable post-Christmas gift.

The 36th annual edition, airing Sunday night at 9 on CBS, is no exception as honors are bestowed on a new quintet of legends: opera diva Martina Arroyo, virtuoso jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, Oscar-winning actress-singer-dancer Shirley MacLaine, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Billy Joel and Carlos Santana.
