Updated Regional Information, March 3, 2016

VANATS members, I hope that your week has not been too stressful as many of you prepare for Spring Break, taxes and the upcoming Regional Auditions.  Susan has been working tirelessly to make sure that all our information has been properly received by National so we owe her a HUGE thanks!

If you are planning on sending students to the Regional Auditions, please register your students today, if possible.  Barbara Peters is expecting huge numbers and she could use the information as soon as possible.  Please remember, that this is a NATSAA year and a Hall Johnson Competition year, so it is more complicated than usual.  Information about registering your students can be found at the MidAtlantic Website.  There are numerous tabs, so I have distilled the information a little here:

Updated letter from Barbara

Auditions website

If you are not bringing your own pianist, here is a list of area pianists, but verify them today because you will NOT be able to register your students if there is no pianist listed.

If you would like to attend the Banquet, you will will need to add $27.50 to the registration fee yourself and pay with PayPal.

Please let us know if we can help in any other way and see you in Charleston!  Kathleen
