Foltz is planning on going to Simpson college to major in vocal performance. Her dream career is to participate and be casted in operatic shows and wants to make money doing what she loves.
In order to receive the scholarship, Foltz first had to audition at Simpson in front of two important people; one of which was the head of the theater department. She auditioned in a private room at a performing arts center, and afterwards she was interviewed. She was asked what fine arts activities she is involved in and her desired future in theater.
On Tuesday, March 1st, Foltz performed at the orchestra concert in front of a big crowd. She sang “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables with classic musical accompaniment from the orchestra, which earned her a big round of applause for her performance. When asked how she felt about her performance, Foltz said, “I think it was amazing! It was one of the best performances I’ve ever had, and ever done.” She also graciously praised the orchestra for their performance as well. “The orchestra was very professional. It was the orchestra who made the performance really great.” She also added, “It turned out well and I’m glad I had the song down to show how great the orchestra is.”
Foltz said that she wants to finish off her year here at Boone High with a great last play production and pass the torch onto the other thespians. She also says she hopes that her last concerts run smoothly as well. When Foltz leaves Boone High, she says that she wants to be remembered for her talent.
Starting next fall semester, Kassy Foltz will be walking around Simpson’s campus, shedding her vocal talent for everyone to hear. Good luck, Kassy Foltz.
