Governor’s School for the Arts: 25 Years and Going Strong
Two-hundred twenty-five students from 43 counties across Kentucky make up the Governor’s School for the Arts class of 2012. Students spend three weeks on Transylvania University's campus immersed in the study of one of nine disciplines, from architecture to musical theater. They start with performances at morning assembly and go until curfew, creating ensemble pieces, solo work and interdisciplinary projects. Carrie Nath taught drama at GSA for three years before taking the reins as executive director last year. She’s taught in nearly every state in the country, and she says GSA is among the strongest arts programs she’s worked for. This summer marks 25 years for the program.Nath speaks here with WFPL's Erin Keane on Byline.
