To finish off the year, VPAC hosts Encore, an annual showcase celebrating the achievements of our organizations. Various VPAC group collaborate to put on a performance in which the Vanderbilt Performing Arts Community comes together to celebrate the incredible work we have done. In addition, over 20 Encore Awards are presented to groups for excellent performances, artistic direction, and technical achievement. Additionally, VPAC presents the Impact Award for the individual(s) that have had the most impact on the performing arts, as well the Community Award for the organization that best represents the spirit of support and community. Award winners are determined by a combination of student body vote and the educated opinion of the Nominating Committee, which is comprised of members from all 30 organizations.
