The Governor’s School for the Arts just wrapped up its 33rd year of holding an intensive three-week summer program. For the first time since 1987, the GSA was held at the University of Kentucky.
Just after lunch on the last day before the final weekend performances, a group of budding singers warmed up with vocal exercises.
This year, the Governor’s School for the Arts included 256 rising high school juniors and seniors. There were 1,400 applicants. GSA Director Nick Covault said some participants go on to professional careers, but it’s not the goal of all.
