This event inaugurates the Jon Vickers Film Scoring Award, which was presented to Ari Fisher in May of 2015 as a commission to create an orchestral score for The Return of Draw Egan. This annual award is endowed by a gift from former IU trustee, the Honorable P.A. Mack Jr. Through a juried competition, the commission will be awarded each year to a student from the composition department in the Jacobs School of Music. This presentation includes IU students in the roles of composer, conductor, musicians, audio technicians, projectionist, house managers, and ushers.
