The 2022 Jon Vickers Film Scoring Award was presented to Daniel Whitworth in September 2020 as a commission to create an orchestral score for the 1919 film Phil-for-Short, starring Evelyn Greeley. This annual award is endowed by a gift from former IU trustee, the Honorable P.A. Mack Jr. This premiere presentation includes IU students in the roles of composer, conductor, musicians, audio technicians, projectionist, house managers, and ushers.
Presented in partnership with the Jacobs School of Music.
Curated by Maggie Hennefeld, Laura Horak and Jon Vickers.
