PEARL, MS -- The Mississippi Braves are once again looking for local talent to perform at games this season. Auditions for the National Anthem and Mascot will be held Saturday, March 16 at Trustmark Park, from 11 am to 2 pm. Individuals or groups may participate.
WHAT: National Anthem and Mascot Auditions
WHEN: Saturday, March 16 from 11 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 2019 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 2019, 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.
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 ready for an improv performance.
Auditions will take place inside Trustmark Park, and participants will enter through the main gate. Local celebrities and Braves staff will judge the auditions. 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.
