The Williamsport Crosscutters will hold auditions for National Anthem performers on Wednesday, May 1 from 6pm-8pm at the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport.
All individuals and groups who are interested in performing the anthem prior to a 2013 home game must audition on this date, including all who have performed in previous years.
"Traditionally, we have held the auditions at Historic Bowman Field," said Gabe Sinicropi, the Cutters Vice-President of Marketing and Public Relations. "This year, through the cooperation of Rob Steele and the Community Arts Center, we've decided to change the venue and bring the auditions to another crown jewel in our city."
The Crosscutters are looking for any and all types of performers including soloists, groups, and musicians, of any age. All vocal auditions will be performed a cappella and performances must be kept under one minute and thirty seconds.
Performers will be heard on a first come, first served basis during the audition time and rated by a panel of guest celebrity judges. Those chosen to sing at a game will be notified and scheduled at a later date.
Community Arts Center, located at 220 W. Fourth St. in downtown Williamsport is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the community by providing exceptional arts and entertainment events and participatory activities while offering programming that is appropriate to the diverse interests and needs of a regional audience, priced fairly to assure accessibility to all.
