Arts Without Boundaries, a Montana nonprofit group promoting the arts in secondary schools, is honoring outstanding high school seniors with $100 awards for their contribution to the arts. The Billings Gazette’s Enjoy will feature one of the recipients each week.

Name: Kristi Rawlinson

School: Skyview High School

Arts programs: Choir and orchestra

Explain how your participation in choir and orchestra has impacted your scholastic success: Being in orchestra and choir has had an impact on my grades. I need to keep up good grades in order to go to music festivals. I also want to create a good name for the music kids!

What influence will your music have on your future, through higher education, professional goals, or your life in general? I want to go to BYU and major in music education and hopefully become a high school orchestra teacher. I would love to continue to play in professional orchestras and ensembles in my adult life. I would also love to teach private lessons.

How has music helped you contribute to your school and community? I have represented my school at All-State Orchestra all four years of high school. I have been in All-Northwest Orchestra twice, and in choir once. I also represented the school when I played in the National Youth Orchestra in Washington, D.C., at the Kennedy Center, and New York City at Carnegie Hall. I have been a member of the Billings Symphony Orchestra for three years.
