Welcome to the website of NATS, Redwood Empire Chapter!
You’ll find top-notch collegiality, along with plenty of pedagogical and artistic stimulation in this group!
Following the example of our national organization, we offer, locally, several events and programs each year. This gives our students (of all levels) opportunities to perform, to learn and to grow as singers. These events include the annual Scholarship Auditions/Winners Recital in February, as well as Spring/Fall master classes and seminars presented by nationally known experts in various styles and areas of expertise (recent examples include Dave Stroud with Speech Level Singing, Singers’ Gym coaches Ben Bernstein and Kathy Cathcart, Lisa Popeil and the Total Singer vocal technique, the late Lorenzo Malfatti, Italian lyric diction coach, and Dr. Alan Smith of USC).
Our biggest event is our fall fundraiser "Libiamo!" concert. Chapter members present musical entertainment along with an elegant dinner in a beautiful Country Club setting. Our chapter offers our voice teachers ideas and resources on repertoire, venues, accompanists, health care professionals in our area, and access to all master classes and workshops. We strongly promote professionalism and a unified code of business ethics among local voice teachers.
Please feel free to peruse the rest of our website for more information on upcoming chapter events, and our membership directory. And please let us know if we can assist you in finding a voice teacher to meet your needs and objectives. That’s what we’re all about!
Best wishes for lifelong vocal health and enjoyment,
Please let us know if we can assist you in finding a voice teacher to meet your needs and objectives. We also have a network of coaches and accompanists.
