NGU Graduate Named Semifinalist for 2016 National Student Auditions

The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) recently announced the semifinalists selected to advance to the onsite national semifinal round at the 2016 National Student Auditions in Chicago as part of the NATS 54th National Conference this July.

North Greenville University 2016 graduate Steven Bates from Lebanon, PA has been selected to represent the Mid-Atlantic region in the Upper College Music Theater Men category. One of fifteen categories.

The semifinal round will be held on Saturday, July 9 at Roosevelt University. The final round will be held Sunday, July 10 at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile.

Because this is only the third year for the NATS National Student Auditions, Bates is the first NGU student to make the semi-finals.

“Steven has a great love for performing,” said Dr. Cheryl Greene, NGU Professor of Music and Voice Department Coordinator. “I am excited about his opportunity to compete in the semi-finals in the NATS Musical Theatre category.”

NATS celebrates the art of singing through a series of competitions and programs that are designed to showcase the talented singers and performers who are soon to be rising stars in the profession.

National Student Auditions is an annual national competition and an exciting experience for regional NATS student singers to perform, compete against other top artists from around the country, and receive written feedback from a panel of national judges.

Prizes for the competition totals over $30,000.

Three singers from each regional category advance to a national online screening round, where entrants submit a video of their performances for adjudication by judges. Fourteen singers from each of the 15 categories will advance to the semifinal round where three singers from each category will be selected to compete in the final round.
