For the auditions, students are required to sing three to five pieces from memory, depending on their category level. Students sing in a preliminary round, and anyone with an average score of 90 or above advances to the final round. Each round is judged by three NATS teachers.
Mavericks will travel to Greeley, Colorado to sing at the West Central Regional NATS Student Auditions in November.
