OSAS is a week-long harp camp for ages 12-up, held on the campus of Oberlin College. The purpose is to learn Scottish music on lever and wire harps, and to make friends. Classes include singing, morning and afternoon harp classes on four levels, lectures, mixed instrument classes, and nightly sessions for adults, with activities for the teens. The week begins with the optional Ohio Scottish Games harp competition on Saturday, and runs through Friday noon.
