Hello! The Willamette Chapter of NATS will be hosting a small Auditions Festival at OSU on November 3rd. Registration is now open! These auditions will be classical categories for all, with the addition of musical theatre categories for high school only.
Please register students right away! We hope those of you who teach but are not yet members of Willamette NATS will decide to become members of our chapter and bring your students. Your students can qualify for regionals at multiple auditions. Visit nats.org to add a chapter membership and to get started with registration for the auditions.
Do you know anyone who may benefit from membership at the associate or full member level of NATS who is in the area? Please send them our way! We are hoping to have more music educators of all kinds who teach voice at some level, as well as collaborative pianists. We are also in need of executive members of the board. Please contact our president, Nicholas Larson, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Thanks!
You can also volunteer to be an adjudicator at our festival even if you are not joining the Willamette chapter and entering students, or recommend a voice professional outside of NATS who would be perfect for adjudication of this festival. We will need a few extra judges to cover all the categories and would be forever grateful for your service. We will treat you to lunch and try to accommodate other needs you may have. Please contact Beverly Park, our membership chair, at email@example.com as soon as you can if you are able!
