Students Selected for Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain
Casady School has six students who have been invited to the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain.
Katherine Cadzow, Vivian Costello, Sophia Dykstra, and Andrew Youn for Violin; Kendall Terry for Drawing and Painting, and Pearce Wade for Bass. High school students from across the state audition for this prestigious academy.
Only a select few of students make it into the Quartz Mountain program. To make the orchestra, students auditioned with a scale, solo, an instrument-selected étude, and sight-reading. Kendall submitted her visual art portfolio to a judging panel and auditioned by drawing and painting a still life in 50 minutes. Kendall is one of only 20 students selected into the Drawing and Painting program.
Casady's five students will attend the academy June 8-23. They will get to work with top level instructors from all over the country to further develop their craft. Orchestra students will perform two concerts. Kendall’s art work will be displayed in a public exhibition. Congratulations to Katherine, Vivian, Sophia, Andrew, Kendall, and Pearce for their hard work and dedication!
