The CWU student chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing is a club focused on reaching out to the students and faculty across campus that have an interest in vocal music and to expose them to the many enjoyable forms and styles of vocal music.


As a club, our goal is to expand our knowledge and gain exposure to new forms of the art by attending performances and providing performance opportunities for those involved in the club.

CWU SNATS also strives to build unity amongst singers and to use vocal music in community service opportunities to serve and better the Ellensburg and Central Washington University community.


Every year SNATS participates in a number of organized events including but not limited to:

  • Annual trip to Inland Empire NATS Auditions
  • Workshops and Clinicians on vocal health and pedagogy
  • Trips to Seattle Opera and other Northwest performances
  • Performances throughout the Northwest
  • Christmas Caroling and Holiday Party
  • Annual Bella Notte dinner



The Bella Notte dinner is held in downtown Ellensburg at Gallery One. The evening features student performances over a fabulous dinner.
