Singing Her Way to Broadway

Andrea Taylor: Residential Governor's School Program for Music


Andrea Taylor will attend the 5 week Residential Governor's School Program for Music this summer.

On January 2nd, roughly 200 students arrived at The Governor’s School for the Arts in Norfolk, Virginia, to audition for the Residential Governor’s School Program for Music. Out of those 200, only 25 of the applicants were given the opportunity to join the advanced five week residential program at Radford University.

Midlo chorus teacher, Mrs. Michelle Graham, nominated junior Andrea Taylor to audition for the Governor’s School’s Program early this school year. During the audition process, applicants were judged on technique, interpretation, tone, intonation, musical effect, sight-reading, and diction. After singing Caro Mio Ben by Malena Ernman and I’m Not Afraid of Anything by Andrea Burns during tryouts, Andrea was happily welcomed into the school.

Andrea says that she only knows one person in the acting program at Radford but is very excited to meet new people. This big musical adventure will help her reach the next big step to bringing her talent  to Broadway. The rising star could not be more thrilled to have this opportunity to “perfect her vocal performance.” This is an incredibly special opportunity for Andrea because she says, “I plan to do this for the rest of my life.” Congratulations, Andrea!
