Smith Receives Scholarship for OSAI


Abby Smith has been selected to attend the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain (OSAI). Smith will start her lessons next week and they will carry on over the next two months. 

OSAI is offering this experience for students who excel in one of the following disciplines: acting, chorus, creative writing, dance, drawing & painting, film & video, orchestra, or photography. Individual instruction will take place once a week in a student’s discipline. 

Smith will participate in chorus. She was chosen by a statewide virtual audition process. First students were nominated by their teachers and then the students submitted a vocal audition piece. Smith also won a full scholarship to participate. 

“This is my second year auditioning, so I am not that nervous but one thing I wish I could do is to be (a) better (singer),” Abby Smith, senior, said.
