12/17/18: Kathleen O’Brien, CEO, TPAC

Thirty-year TPAC veteran, Kathleen O’Brien, will give a brief update on the center and the 2019 schedule.  As a special treat, Kathleen will present selected songs from a new project she’s working on, with performances from some Nashville treasures.

Kathleen O’Brien has led the organization for the past 13 years, becoming the first and only woman to do so in TPAC’s almost 38-year history. She first came to TPAC in 1988 as the public affairs director.

Founded in 1980, TPAC serves several hundred thousand audience members each year with the HCA/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC series, a variety of special engagements, and the productions of three resident artistic companies – Nashville Ballet, Nashville Opera, and Nashville Repertory Theatre.  In addition, TPAC administers one of the largest and most comprehensive arts education programs in the United States, serving students from pre-school to high school, educators, and adults.
