The Charlotte Stone Crabs will host open national anthem auditions for the 2013 Rays Spring Training season and Stone Crabs regular season on Thursday Jan. 31 and Friday Feb. 1 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. at Charlotte Sports Park.
All individuals and groups who are interested in singing the “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to a 2013 home game must audition on this date. No private auditions are available. All singers who performed in previous seasons are required to audition again for the upcoming season.
Anthem tryouts are available on a first-come, first-served basis by appointment only. Please contact Mary Hegley at (941) 206-3510 or email@example.com. This will serve as the only audition date prior to the 2013 season. All interested parties will be required to sing a live, acapella version of the national anthem during the tryout in front of a panel of judges from the Stone Crabs front office.
Performers are encouraged to bring a set of ear plugs for their audition as they will be singing into a microphone which will be broadcast over the speakers at the stadium.
