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.
Partnership on Advanced Manufacturing Consortium
The Coordinate Metrology Society and UNC Charlotte have won an Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department.
The grant is dedicated to accelerating the growth of advanced manufacturing in the United States. These industry-driven coalitions will focus on developing and executing strategic plans to solve common technology challenges.
The CMS-UNC Charlotte team will form a consortium for large-scale, precision manufacturing innovation (CLPMI). The group will identify and prioritize the technology needs of the aerospace, defense, energy and other industries that manufacture large-scale, high accuracy parts and products.
