Association of Teachers of Singing
Congratulations to Big Bear High School and Middle School Students
November 2018___ The press was contacted by Voice
instructor, Diane Kubeja of Big Bear
High School and Middle School students who
recently participated in the NATS (National Association of Teachers of
Singing) Student Auditions at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on
Saturday, November 10. The
event was brimming with phenomenal singing by over 150 sudents from California,
Nevada and Utah.
The singing was so amazing in Division 4
that the adjudicators had to split the category into two parts and award
prizes to more than twice as many students as normal. There was
nearly a clean sweep by Big Bear High
School students in this division.
