Mission Statement

The mission of ENY/NATS:

To strengthen the vitality of vocal arts in the Capital District of New York State by encouraging the highest standards of vocal instruction

To create a supportive network of voice teachers in our community and region

To offer opportunities for professional, collegial, and social interaction for the chapter members
and their students

The Eastern New York Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing received its official charter from the National Association of Teachers of Singing in the spring of 2005. We meet twice annually, and hold various events that enhance both the growth of our students and members. One of the highlights of these events include the Art Song Festival. This three-day event provides valuable musical and dramatic coaching of singers of our region and culminates in our district NATS auditions. Other events include a college vocal audition workshop, the Art Song Festival Honors Recital, and a Musical Theater Competition. Our chapter also hosts social events and gatherings for the purpose of reading through song literature and attending vocal performances
