Jacobs School to be featured in national commercial


The Jacobs School of Music will participate in the first of many tapings for a series of national commercials promoting the entire IU school system.

Written by Angelo Pizzo and filmed by Fred Murphy — a collaborator on “Hoosiers” — the first commercial of the series will follow a Jacobs School alumna’s journey from graduation to her recent appearance at the Royal Opera House in London.

Ailyn Perez, the featured alumna and soprano, will be at Auer Hall at 3 p.m. May 23 to film the commercial.

IU is asking the student community to participate in the filming by wearing clothing appropriate for the years 1999 and 2000 that is also appropriate attire for a recital.

The participants should be prepared to sit for about an hour and pose as an audience to Perez’s staged performance in the commercial.

When finished, the production crew will offer a reception for all participants, including hors d’ouevres and beverages.

To become involved with the filming, RSVP to
