The Williamsport Crosscutters will hold auditions for National Anthem performers on Friday, May 5 from 6-8pm at the Community Arts Center during May's First Friday in downtown Williamsport.
All individuals and groups who are interested in performing the anthem prior to a 2017 home game must audition on this date, including those who have performed in previous years.
"We have so many great performers in our area and we can't wait to hear them," said Gabe Sinicropi, the Cutters Vice-President of Marketing and Public Relations. "We are pleased and proud to be able to hold our auditions in the great facilities of the CAC, especially on First Friday in downtown Williamsport"
The Crosscutters are looking for any and all types of performers including soloists, groups, and musicians, of any age. All vocal auditions must be 90 seconds or less in length, the traditional rendition and a cappella.
Performers will be heard on a first come, first served basis during the audition time. Those chosen to sing at a game will be notified and scheduled at a later date. All those who audition will receive a free gift from the Crosscutters. Any and all First Friday attendees are welcome to enter the Community Arts Center to view the auditions.
