COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – The Colorado Springs Sky Sox, in conjunction with The Colorado Springs Conservatory, will be hosting vocalist auditions for the 2014 season on Saturday, March 8th from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the main stage in Chapel Hills Mall. Soloists, duets, trios and quartets are invited to audition for The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America. Interested parties who would like to reserve an audition time between noon and 2:00 PM should contact Brian Paneral in the Sky Sox promotions department at (719) 597-1449 or through e-mail at bpaneral@skysox.com. Open auditions will be on a first-come, first-serve basis from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. All vocal performances must be a cappella and only traditional renditions of songs will be considered for selection. Singers may sing either The Star Spangled Banner or God Bless America and will be considered for either song.
The top performances will be determined by a judging panel consisting of Sky Sox staff, Colorado Springs Conservatory Curriculum Coordinator and Opera Singer Amber Marek and local DJs Nomi (103.9 RXP), Chris Austin (92.9 Peak FM), Romi (Magic 98.9 FM), and Tammy Oakland (106.3 K-LITE).
Top performers will sing live at Security Service Field during the 2014 baseball season which begins on Friday, April 11th and runs through Wednesday, August 27th. The very best performer of the day will be selected to have the honor of singing the National Anthem on Opening Day and an additional performer will earn the opportunity to sing God Bless America on July 3rd. In addition, The Colorado Springs Conservatory, who is sponsoring the auditions, will be awarding each of the top ten individual singers of the day a one hour singing lesson with their esteemed organization.
“This contest truly brings out the best of the best in our community – from retired military to outstanding young professionals, from elementary school age children to the stay at home mom who loves to sing – truly a testament to what the Sky Sox mean to this city,” comments Linda Weise, Founding Executive Director of the Colorado Springs Conservatory. “The Colorado Springs Conservatory is proud to be a sponsor!”
