National Anthem Auditions To Take Place at Crossgates Mall on Saturday, April 14



The Tri-City ValleyCats will host their 2018 National Anthem tryouts at Crossgates Mall on Saturday, April 14, where participants will have the opportunity to earn themselves a performance prior to one of the ValleyCats biggest games of the season!

The auditions will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. and run until 12:30 p.m. Registration for the 8th Annual event will begin at 9:30 a.m. on the lower level outside of Lord & Taylor.

A panel of judges will score the performances based on sound quality, stage presence, and song accuracy. The top five finalists will have their performances taped and placed online for a fan vote.

The top vote recipient will receive the opportunity to perform on one of the biggest nights of the year at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium such as Opening Night or the 4th of July, in front of an average crowd of 5,000+ fans! The rest of the finalists will be awarded the chance to sing at another night during the season.

Auditions will be conducted on a first-come, first-perform basis, can be done individually or as a group, and must either be acapella or performed with a musical instrument that does not require power.

The ValleyCats home opener is set for Friday, June 15, as they begin their 17th season at “The Joe!” Season tickets, mini plans and flex vouchers are currently available for purchase online at tcvalleycats.com, by calling 518-629-CATS, or visiting the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium box office.

Individual tickets are set to go on sale Thursday, March 29 to coincide with Major League Baseball’s Opening Day! The ValleyCats are proud to be the longest tenured minor league affiliate of the World Series Champion Houston Astros!
