Four BYU vocal students recently placed in their divisions at the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) Regional Conference and Student Auditions.
The Cal-West regional competition, held this year at the University of Nevada, Reno, takes in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California and Hawaii and is divided by age groups and musical categories.
BYU students Anna Low and Camilla Andelin, both students of Diane Reich and Mindy Ammons, took first and second place respectively in the Lower College Division (18 years); Josie Larsen, a student of Reich, placed first in the Lower College Division (up to 22 years); and Christina Brandt, a graduate student of Robert Brandt, placed second in the Advanced College Division.
“I am so pleased to report the success of our students,” said Reich. “All of the BYU students who competed placed in their divisions and are eligible to apply to compete at the national round this summer.”
