On Saturday, October 28th, in conjunction with the annual Central Region Conference and Student Auditions, we will be hosting our First Annual Summer Program Auditions (SPA). Please promote and encourage this wonderful opportunity to your students. If you are affiliated with a summer music program, you are welcome to participate as a panelist in the audition process and hear a wealth of potential program participants in one location. It is a cost-effective opportunity for both the auditioning singers and the summer program panelists. Any student of a current Central Region NATS Member in good standing and registered for the conference is eligible to audition for the "Summer Program Auditions".
