WASHINGTON — You might call it “Metro’s Got Talent.”
Metro held auditions Friday to find entertainers to perform this summer outside stations.
At least 30 people or groups took part in the tryouts in front of a panel of judges at Metro headquarters.
Standouts at the auditions included Roxanne Jarrett, who sang a Cyndi Lauper hit, a spoken word artist named Epiphany and musician Orin Richards who played guitar and sang songs by Bob Marley and John Legend.
Those who are chosen for the program, called MetroPerforms!, will show off their talents outside stations between noon and 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 and 6 p.m.
The performances are unpaid, and performers are not allowed to ask for donations or sell merchandise outside Metro stations.
Those who auditioned will also be considered for Music on the Mall, a series of Thursday noontime concerts this summer on the lawn of the National Mall.
Entertainers chosen for that series will be paid a small fee.
