Fresno State Music Department graduate student, Christopher Rodriguez, has advanced to the semi-final round in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) “2020 National Student Auditions.” Rodriguez is one of 14 students nationwide to advance to the semi-final round in the “Advanced Classical Tenor, Baritone, Bass” category.
“Congratulations and best of luck in the semi-finals!” said Dr. Maria S. Briggs – Okunev, assistant professor of voice and voice area coordinator.
The top three singers will advance to the final round as part of the NATS Virtual National Conference, June 24-30.
Just weeks ago, Rodriguez moved into the semi-final round of the National Classical Singer Competition. Unfortunately, while he did score high in the semi-final round, he did not advance to the final round.
