Nationals hold auditions to find new national anthem singers

WASHINGTON — If you’ve ever pictured yourself belting out the national anthem in an eminent sporting venue, you could soon have a chance to turn that dream into a reality.

On Friday, Feb. 23, between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., the Washington Nationals will hold an audition to select national anthem performers for its 2018 season.

Each candidate will be asked to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” a cappella for a panel of judges consisting of Nationals entertainment staff members.

Better be quick though — only the first 50 people/groups who submit applications will be invited to try out at Nationals Park.

The application to audition will go live this Thursday at noon.

Candidates interested in auditioning are asked to apply on the Nationals’ website.

The audition is not open to the public and will take place regardless of weather conditions.
