National anthem auditions to be Saturday for T-Bones

Want to audition for the national anthem at the T-Bones game?

The T-Bones are holding national anthem and “God Bless America” music tryouts from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City, Kansas.

Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. for all bands, choirs, groups, musicians and individual performers interested in auditioning. Performances must be 110 seconds or less in the traditional version of the songs and will be performed without any additional background music.

Before the audition, interested performers must complete a registration form, which can be found at TBonesBaseball.com, or one will be provided at the audition. Applicants are allowed to audition for both songs, but it must be specified on the form, according to a spokesman.

Performers will be given an audition number as they arrive and register at Gate A at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. The order of the auditions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Performers must be aware that the auditions will be open to the public and no compensation will occur. Performers should wear respectable and appropriate attire, and be prepared for the weather, as the auditions will be taking place outdoors, according to the spokesman.

The T-Bones open the 2017 regular season at home on May 19 against Lincoln. They have 50 home games scheduled from May 19 to Sept. 4.

For questions about the auditions, contact Morgan Kolenda, the T-Bones’ director of marketing and game entertainment, at mkolenda@tbonesbaseball.com or call 913-328-5641.
