National Anthem tryouts set for April 8 at Crossgates Mall



The Tri-City ValleyCats are set to host their 7th Annual National Anthem tryouts at Crossgates Mall on Saturday, April 8 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Registration will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. and will be located on the lower level outside of Lord & Taylor.

Auditions will be conducted on a first-come, first-go basis in front of a panel of judges who will be judging on the criteria of sound quality, stage presence, and song accuracy. Anthem performances 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 top five finalists will have their performances videotaped, which will then be placed online for a fan vote. The top vote-getter will receive the opportunity to perform on one of the biggest nights of the year at "The Joe," such as Opening Night and 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.

Jaime Roberts, host of Jaime in the Morning on 98.3 TRY, will be the guest MC of the event.

Individual tickets for the 2017 season go on sale Monday, April 3 at 10:00 a.m.. The ValleyCats home opener is set for Wednesday, June 21, and they will be proud hosts of the 2017 New York-Penn League All-Star Game on Tuesday, August 15 at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.
