This year, awards were given to six USC alumni who have made significant impacts in the fields of classical music, consulting, engineering, medicine, and philanthropy. Former USC Thornton Dean Larry Livingston introduced Lauridsen, a 2007 National Medal of Arts recipient and three-time alumnus (BM ’66, MA ’68, DMA ’74), at the annual luncheon.
