Student Adjudication Announcement Letter

Dear Puget Sound NATS Members,

I am writing to inform you that our annual NATS adjudications will take place on November 11th, 2017 at Seattle Pacific University. (Campus Map of Seattle Pacific University) We are presenting adjudications as a one-day event.

This year registration will take place through the Auditionware online system that National has adopted. You can access the online system from the www.nats.org website. For more information on registering through the new Auditionware, download the Step-by-Step Registration Instructions and the Student Audition FAQs.

Please encourage your qualifying students to participate in this event; students may participate in classical, music theater or both. Information about song selection, qualifications, age groups, etc. can be found here. There have been some notable changes to repertoire requirements, so I encourage you to familiarize yourself with these prior to registering your students.

The registration deadline is Friday, October 27th. I do apologize for the shortened time frame to register your students. Please review the student adjudication guidelines and teacher checklist. If, after reviewing these, there remain unanswered questions, please contact me via email or by phone – both listed with my signature below.

Payment may be made via PayPal at the end of the online application through the NATS website. I appreciate your patience with these changes and will make myself available to help in any way I can.

Thank you,

Jan Nelson
