PEARL, MS -- The Mississippi Braves are looking for local talent to perform at games this season. Auditions for the National Anthem and Mascot will be held Saturday, March 3 at Trustmark Park, from 10 am to 2 pm. Individuals or groups may participate.

"This is a great opportunity for Braves fans to be a big part of our game day experience," said M-Braves Promotions and Entertainment Manager Dan Oleskowicz. "We hope people bring their best singing voice and dance moves to the auditions!" 

WHAT: National Anthem and Mascot Auditions 
WHEN: Saturday, March 3rd from 10 am-2 pm 
WHERE: Trustmark Park

National Anthem Auditions: 
Candidates will perform over the stadium PA system. Come prepared with a traditional rendition of the National Anthem. The chosen singers will perform at M-Braves home games during the 2018 season. Choirs and larger groups are welcome to audition to deliver the National Anthem. Participants will be judged on a cappella and acoustic instrumental renditions only, as no electric or amplified instruments can be utilized for game day performances. All singers who would like to sing the anthem in 2018, including those who have sung at an M-Braves game in the past, are required to attend this audition. Video audition tapes will not be accepted.

Mascot Auditions:
The Braves are looking for energetic, friendly and enthusiastic individuals to fulfill this position. A suit will not be provided for your audition, so bring your own, or be prepared to audition without a suit. Come prepared with a 30-second routine of your choice as well as being prepared for an improv performance.

Auditions will take place inside Trustmark Park, and participants will enter through the main gate. The auditions will be judged by local celebrities and Braves staff. There is no appointment necessary and performers will audition in the order in which they arrive. The tryout is open to all area performers and musicians, allowing Braves fans the unique chance to be a valuable part of the game day atmosphere. Also, any tryout participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the audition

The Mississippi Braves are the Double-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves and will open their 14th season on Thursday, April 5 against the Tennessee Smokies at Trustmark Park. Since the inaugural 2005 season, over 125 M-Braves have gone on to Major League Baseball.
