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. 

Twenty singers from NGU competed at the competition and fourteen received scores that made them eligible to advance to the regional level which will be held in Virginia this spring. 

Singers that advanced are:  Students of Dr. Cheryl Greene: Haley Burton, Marlee Daniel, Caroline Hartzog, Breanna Jones, Rachael Palmeri, Leslie Turner, and Allison Yeater. Students of Dr. Seth Killen: Ashlyn Butrovich, Tanner Dean, Abby Gilbert, Ian Ritchings, and Austin Smith. Students of Mr. Luke Browder: Cameron Burroughs (winner of her category) and Austin Painter.
