DMA student Olivia Yokers was selected for the 2023 NATS Intern Program. Sponsored by the National Association of Teachers of Singing, this prestigious program pairs early-career voice teachers with veteran teachers who mentor them as vocal pedagogues. The program will take place May 30-June 9 on the campus of West Chester University in West Chester, PA.
Carole Blankenship, director of the 2023 NATS Intern Program and immediate past president of NATS, said she is looking forward to working with this outstanding class of interns.
“We are so thrilled to invite this remarkable group of early career voice teachers and collaborative artists to attend the 2023 NATS Intern Program,” Blakenship says. “The group includes active performers and scholars who are teaching in independent studios, college programs, and/or high school programs. They are already contributing to the voice profession in many different ways through their teaching and research, including serving NATS in various ways. We look forward to bringing this cohort of teacher/scholars into the 32-year legacy that is the NATS Intern Program.”
