2011 Fall Meeting & Auditions Information

Hello Fellow Voice Teachers,

I hope you are all settling in to your fall routines and looking forward to a great year of teaching.

This fall the Ontario Chapter Auditions are going “ONLINE”.  Applications will all be done on the:
www.natsauditions.com website.

This will be a learning curve for everyone, so please take time to check out the website and familiarize yourself with it before the application due date.
The executive has decided to go with this program as the software will schedule the applicants, Adjudicators & Pianists speedily and efficiently.

Also, as per an almost unanimous show of hands at the Spring Meeting we will be having our Fall Meeting the night before the Auditions in conjunction with dinner and a speaker.
