Two Voice Students in National Competition
Two UNC Charlotte music students will compete in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) National Student Auditions on July 7. The students, Hunter Aldridge and Tyrez Dabbs, are both tenors and both study with Dr. Brian Arreola, assistant professor of voice and director of the Department of Music opera workshop program.
To qualify for the National Student Auditions, the two students advanced through three rounds of competition over the past five months.
The National Student Auditions will be held at UNC Greensboro at the NATS National Conference on July 7. More than 150 students will compete in 12 categories. After two rounds of competition, 24 students will receive cash prizes – two from each category.
LiveSafe Mobile App Available to Campus
UNC Charlotte officials are offering a free mobile device application for students, faculty and staff to instantly share safety and security concerns with the University Police and Public Safety Department. The free app, called LiveSafe, is now available as campus safety officials introduced the new technology earlier this month. Students and employees can download the free app on their smart phones and tablets through iTunes and Google Play.
Using the app, members of the campus community can share information through text, photo or video directly from their smart phones. The notifications can be made anonymously. Campus police will be able to respond to reports and monitor real-time information from a command dashboard.
