In Performance at the Governor's Mansion
A showcase of Kentucky’s best and brightest performers, featuring music, dance, dramatic readings, poetry, and more.
Michael Fitzpatrick

Cellist Michael Fitzpatrick lives in Louisville but performs around the world. Among his accomplishments is a performance for the Dalai Lama at the Abbey of Gethsemani near Bardstown in 1996. A subsequent performance in Mammoth Cave grew out of that experience and resulted in a CD entitled Compassion that blended Michael’s music with the traditional chants of Trappist and Tibetan monks. For In Performance, Michael presented a solo performance and then accompanied the Gordon Dance Project as part of “The Kentucky Collage.”

On the Road to The Kentucky Center
Stellar performances by some of Kentucky’s best performing artists—the Imani Dance and Drum Company, Hog Operation with the Kentucky Cloggers, cellist Michael Fitzpatrick with the Gordon Dance Project, the American Spiritual Ensemble, and the Kentucky Jazz Connection—celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Governor’s Awards in the Arts.
