Audition performances must be 90 seconds or less, and they will be judged on tone, pace and clarity. The “top candidates” will be invited for in-person auditions on Saturday, March 9, at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. Walk-ups will not be accepted at this in-person audition. 

Submissions will be accepted through March 1. The team has more than five dozen home games in 2019, bringing just as many chances to sing the anthem. The season begins at home on April 4.
