Summer Program Auditions

Apply to your dream summer and young artists programs all at once!

NATS is finding ways to assist singers in locating and auditioning for summer programs and young artist programs. National NATS Summer Program Auditions (SPA) is a unified summer program audition opportunity that allows singers to submit their application and video auditions in one place to be considered for multiple programs! Interested students pay a one-time $25 fee* to submit to up to 5 participating programs of their choice. (*Some programs require additional fees. See listings.)

All participating singers also are automatically considered for one of several “Dillard Scholar Awards” in memory and honor of our late NATS president Jane Dillard. These awards are intended as scholarship monies toward costs associated with attendance at one of the participating summer programs or young artist programs. 

Applications are open November 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. Programs will have access to student materials starting January 1, 2022. NATS teachers and singers with questions should contact . Information about registering for the National NATS Summer Program Auditions is available in the links below.
