Soloists, duets, trios and quartets are invited to audition for The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America.

Interested parties who would like to reserve an audition time between noon and 2 p.m. should contact Brian Paneral in the Sky Sox promotions department at 719.597.1449 or bpaneral@skysox.com.

Open auditions will be on a first-come, first-serve basis from 2-4 p.m. All vocal performances must be a cappella and only traditional renditions of songs will be considered. Singers may sing 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 curriculum coordinator and opera singer Amber Marek and local DJs.

Top performers will sing live at Security Service Field during the 2014 Friday, April 11 through Wednesday, Aug. 27. The best performer will sing the National Anthem on Opening Day and an additional performer will sing God Bless America on July 3.
