NGU Voice Students Advance to Regional Competition

The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) celebrates the art of singing through a series of competitions to showcase the talented singers and performers who are soon to be rising stars in the profession. 

The National Student Auditions are held annually and have four levels of competition: State, Regional, National, and National Finals. South Carolina NATS held the Musical Theatre and Contemporary Commercial Music (CCM) competition at Converse College on October 28.
