INTERMOUNTAIN REGIONAL NSA

The National Student Auditions (NSA) are held annually and begin in the Intermountain Region with a video audition.  The top 5 in each regional category can progress to the national online round and beyond.  In order to qualify for the regional competition, singers must study with a NATS teacher and follow all guidelines association with the regional and national processes.  Ages range from 9th grade to 30 years old, in music theater and classical categories.
​The exciting experience of NATS Student Auditions, where singers perform and receive written feedback, is now an annual national round of competition with total prizes of more than $35,000!
 

 

HOW IT WORKS

Entry is open to students of NATS members in the Intermountain Region.  Although our region does not require placing at the Chapter level as a prerequisite for participation in the Intermountain Regional NSAs, teachers are strongly encouraged to vet their students before submitting them for this national competition.

The Intermountain Regional NSA is by YouTube videos only, submitted via AuditionWare; there is no live adjudication for the regional level.  Entries are adjudicated by teachers from the region; teachers will not adjudicate their own students but all teachers who enter students are expected to assist with the adjudications.  Adjudicators may advance 5 singers from each category (1-14) to the National Preliminary Round which also takes place via video submission.

FEES:  There are no teacher fees but each student entry pays a $25 fee.  The money will be divided among those winners who are chosen to advance to NSA Semifinal Rounds on June 26 - 27, 2020 at the 56th National Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee to assist with their costs.
