Vejonis decorated Part with the Cross of Recognition, 2nd Class, while conductor Tonu Kaljuste was decorated with the Cross of Recognition, 3rd Class, spokespeople for the Arvo Part Center said.

Part was presented with the decoration in connection with the Latvian president's state visit to Estonia.
