Mansfield Voice Students Successfully Compete at Regional Auditions

MANSFIELD, PA – A group of voice students from Mansfield attended the Allegheny Mountain Chapter of the National Association of Teaching of Singing student auditions November 3 at York College. Approximately 150 students from Pennsylvania competed in categories ranging from high school to graduate school. Eighteen students from Mansfield auditioned in the event. Each of the students studies voice with either Dr. Youngsuk Kim or Dr. Alissa Rose. The top three winners in each category were featured in a final concert at the end of the auditions. All students received comment sheets from the judges, who were voice teachers and NATS members. The auditions are a great opportunity for students to get feedback about their singing, hear other students from across the region, and be exposed to a wide variety of repertoire. NATS is the largest association of teachers of singing in the world, with members in more than twenty-five countries, and the student auditions are one of the major activities of each NATS chapter.
