NATS: Oh Say Can You Sing?

Are you over the limit for American Idol or didn’t want to stand in line for days, but think that you can sing?

The Washington Nationals are now accepting applications for those talented fans interested in performing the National Anthem throughout the 2013 season at Nationals Park.

The first 50 anthem hopefuls to submit their resume (performance or otherwise) and a recent photo to anthem@nationals.com will be invited to audition live at Nationals Park on Saturday, March 9 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Anthem performers must meet the following prerequisites:
– The anthem should be no longer than 90 seconds
– The anthem must be performed in the traditional style; all auditions must be A cappella
– Groups and instrumentalists are invited to audition as well

These auditions are not open to the public and will take place regardless of weather conditions. For more information, visit nationals.com/anthem.
