Sky Sox Announce 2015 National Anthem Tryouts

Auditions will be held at Chapel Hills Mall on March 7


 The Colorado Springs Sky Sox, in conjunction with The Colorado Springs Conservatory, will be hosting vocalist auditions for the 2015 season on Saturday, March 7 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the main stage in Chapel Hills Mall. Soloists, duets, trios and quartets are invited to audition The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America. Interested parties who would like to reserve an audition time between noon and 2:00 PM should contact Phil George in the Sky Sox promotions department at (719) 597-1449 or through e-mail at philgeorge@skysox.com. Open auditions will be on a first-come, first-serve basis from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. All vocal performances must be a cappella and only traditional renditions of songs will be considered for selection. Each performer may audition for either The Star Spangled Banner or God Bless America and will be considered for either song.

The top performances will be determined by a judging panel consisting of Sky Sox staff, Colorado Springs Conservatory staff members and local DJs Nomi (103.9 RXP), Drew Smith (The New 95-1 NASH FM), Nikki Landry (98.9 MAGIC FM) and Tammy Oakland (Sunny 106.3 FM).

Top performers will sing live at Security Service Field during the 2015 baseball season which begins on Thursday, April 9 and runs through Monday, September 7. The very best performer of the day will be selected to have the honor of singing the National Anthem on Opening Day and an additional performer will earn the opportunity to sing God Bless America on July 4. In addition, The Colorado Springs Conservatory, who is sponsoring the auditions, will be awarding each of the top ten individual singers of the day with a one hour singing lesson.

“The Colorado Springs Conservatory is proud to once again sponsor the auditions and offer finalists the opportunity to further explore their vocal talent,” comments Linda Weise, Founding CEO of the Colorado Springs Conservatory. Like the Sky Sox franchise, the Conservatory strives to engage our community in family-friendly activities that will enrich their lives.” For more information on the auditions please contact Phil George at (719) 597-1449 or through e-mail at philgeorge@skysox.com.
