SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury University will be represented this year at the National Association for the Teaching of Singers inaugural student national auditions being held July 6-7 in Boston.

Leah Wilson, a music education and vocal performance major who placed first in the “Junior/Senior Women’s Musical Theatre” category at the NATS student auditions for Maryland-Washington, D.C. and placed third at the Mid-Atlantic regional auditions, was selected to compete after sending a video by the national judges.

Wilson is one of 14 chosen to audition live at the event for the “College/Private Music Theatre Women” category.

“The video screenings eliminated hundreds of qualified entries,” said Dr. John Wesley Wright, of Salisbury’s Department of Music. Wright noted that places Wilson among the best nationwide.

Additionally, Dylan Gregg, a junior at Parkside High School, has also been selected to audition at the event. Gregg is a member of the Wicomico High School Vocal and Performing Arts Program and is a student of Dr. Wright’s. He will perform in the “High School Music Theatre Men” category.

The students at the NATS auditions are judged on stage presence, tone production, diction, artistic impression, and overall presentation.
