(National Association of Teachers of Singing)
Announcements: Many voice students participated in the Musical Theatre solo competition at Meredith College in November. Mackenzie Mullins won her category and she has been invited to participate in the regional NATS competition at Towson University in Maryland, along with Chloe Carroll who has been passed onto regionals. Emma Brown and Emma Freeman had scores that would have qualified for regionals, however, you must be a high school student to compete.
Upcoming competition: Morning of Saturday, February 16th at UNCG. This is the classical version of NATS and Jaclyn is currently creating a list of students planning to participate. Most students will need to sing 3 songs of classical nature, one in a foreign language. Students will sing for 3 judges and later will get comments from each judge. Classical singing is highly recommended to balance the Musical Theatre music we work on most often. It is a much easier way for students to understand how to use their vocal technique because of the demands of classical music. Registration closes 1/31/19 and costs $25, paid directly to Jaclyn Surso. There will be an accompanist fee for rehearsals and the competition that is yet to be decided on. Talk to Jaclyn for more details.
|Healthy Food Option Tips
David Zinczenko’s book, Eat this not that, is a food swapping guide that was published to help folks lose weight. There are online restaurant guides and meal planning that suggests swapping heavy, calorie-laden choices for lower calorie healthy options. And though this article is not a diet advice column, the information in the book’s blog post is useful.
Of the 35 tips for healthy eating at restaurants, here are a few good ones:

Easy food swap from the book:
Love sandwiches? Go ahead and order one. Take off one of the slices of bread, and go open face. You’ve just saved 100 calories, and reduced the likelihood that your body will feel stiff, as carbohydrates can create inflammation. More about that next month.
