2015 NATS Student Auditions Indiana Chapter New  
Regulatons and Guidelines

Dear Indiana NATS Members,
Please find attached the new required regulations and
guidelines established by the National Board of Directors.  
These should help streamline the overall experience for singers
and will ultimately provide for the highest quality adjudication
standards.  They will take effect at the upcoming 2015 NATS
Student Auditions Indiana Chapter on Saturday, November 7,
2015 at DePauw University.  Every effort has been made to
make the information as clear as possible and hopefully answer
any questions that might arise!
You will find two attachments:
1.        Excel color-coded table showing the breakdown of the
new categories, age and repertoire requirements for each
2.        Word document in the format the Chapter members have
received with past Student Auditions.
As you prepare for the upcoming auditions please review these
documents carefully as there are changes in category numbers,
age limitations and repertoire requirements.  The combining of
categories shown on the documents is in line with what our
Chapter has done at past auditions.  
To review a complete document of the National organization’s
new regulations and guidelines use the following link: http://www.
As in previous auditions the same audition scheduling site,
Auditionware, will be used, , and is
presently being set-up for our Chapter’s auditions needs and
registration.  A notification will be sent to you letting you know
when registration is open.
More information will be coming in the next weeks with details
regarding the auditions on November 7, 2015 as well as new
judging procedures.

we move forward as a Chapter with these new changes.
