Fall 2021 Auditions

 Greetings to you all, Michigan NATS members!


This is just a quick note to let you know that your Michigan NATS Board has voted to hold our fall auditions online again this year. Our timeline will be similar to last year: 

September 20: Online Registration Opens

November 5: Registration closes at 11:59 pm

November 6-8: Audition committee reviews entries

November 9-15: Online adjudication takes place

This schedule is subject to revision, but please consider November 5th to be the deadline for the purposes of planning for your students.  

I will send out a full final schedule and information as soon as possible. 


The Board is interested in sponsoring the membership of a Student member (graduate student  or undergraduate student with a strong interest in teaching) who would help us coordinate our social media and be a programming consultant.  If you have any students who might fit the bill, please contact me to nominate them: altadantzler@oakland.edu 


Lastly, please note that the deadline to apply for the NATSAA awards intended for NATS members or their students aged 21-35, is coming up on September 13th.  This link will take you to further information. 


I wish you well for the fall and will be in touch soon with much more detail regarding the fall auditions.  In the meanwhile, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

With all best wishes, 
Alta Boover 

Michigan District Governor

FAQs

With our auditions this fall being fully online, I wanted to address some FAQ's that may help us all prepare for our upcoming November 4th deadline: 1. New CCM categories: We have three-- High School, Collegiate and adult. Children can sing in any style, so no need for a separate category there 2. Judging Preferences: Please update your judging preferences in the system. Since we don't have to deal with room logistics we have a wonderful opportunity to align your assigned categories with your expertise! 3. Time limits: they still apply-- if a category has a 10 minute limit, we will listen to the songs in the order they are listed, and will stop after 10 minutes. Cuts are allowed in piano introductions, interludes and playouts. 4. Registration/Payment: At the state level, this is handled by teachers-only! no students may register themselves 5. Residence requirements: Many of us are teaching via zoom which means greater geographical flexibility. Students are entered ba

Announcing the FULLY ONLINE 2020 Fall Student Auditions (Deadline Nov. 4, 2020)

  Your NATS Michigan Board is thrilled to announce that this year's Fall Student Auditions are moving forward as a fully online event.   This is a fantastic opportunity for all of us and our students to showcase the work we've done in our new teaching & learning environments.   We have worked to make the categories as diverse and inclusive as possible.   After the successful addition of Youth and Adult Categories last year, we have now added two more new categories for CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) singers! This year we will also invite students to enter in more than one category, and have lowered the fee structure both for teachers, and for students entering multiple categories. Online auditions will be conducted just like live auditions, judging assignments will be made accessible on the AuditionWare site. Judges will review, critique, score and complete comment sheets for each singer in their assigned category. These will be submitted through the AuditionWare site.
