Blair graduate Evan Mack receives new Vanderbilt alumni award
Evan Mack, B.Mus. ’03, is the recipient of one of the newest awards presented by the Vanderbilt Alumni Association Board of Directors — the Young Alumni Professional Achievement Award.
The Young Alumni Professional Achievement Award honors an alumnus/a age 40 or younger, with a significant record of career achievement and a promise for future professional success. This award and the Alumni Volunteer Award are new awards created by the Vanderbilt Alumni Association Board of Directors to celebrate alumni accomplishments.
Mack, an assistant professor of piano at Skidmore College, is a distinguished composer and concert pianist. His first opera, Angel of the Amazon, won the Boston Metro Opera MainStage Award. He has produced five full musicals and, as a highly accomplished concert pianist, has toured all over the United States and in Barcelona and South Africa as a champion of American piano music. His most recent project is a two-year development deal to turn Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy’s best-selling novel Roscoe into a new American opera (with libretto by Blair Senior Lecturer Joshua McGuire).
Mack will receive the award during a ceremony recognizing all alumni award recipients.
