NATS is finding ways to assist singers in finding and auditioning for summer programs and young artist programs. Plans are currently underway for the first National NATS Summer Program Auditions (SPA), a unified summer program audition opportunity. This virtual event will allow singers to submit their application and video auditions in one place to be considered for multiple programs! Interested students will pay one $20 fee to submit to their participating programs of choice.
All participating singers will also be 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 our participating summer programs or young artist programs.
A final list of participating programs will be available mid-October, 2020. Applications can be submitted as early as December 1, 2020. Programs will begin looking at materials by mid-January. So, no more applications will be taken after February 1, 2021. NATS teachers and singers with questions should contact Serena Hill LaRoche (email@example.com). Information about registering for the National NATS Summer Program Auditions will be coming to you soon!
Please take a moment to look at the list of programs who have already been invited to participate, and let us know if you are involved in a summer program that would like to participate.
