Dragons 16th Annual National Anthem Tryouts Saturday and Sunday
Dayton Daily News and Dayton Dragons are hosting tryouts at the
Mall at Fairfield Commons and Dayton Mall
DAYTON, OH – A traditional sign that baseball season is just around the corner in the Miami Valley is the Dayton Daily News / Dayton Dragons National Anthem Tryouts at the Dayton Mall and the Mall at Fairfield Commons. Auditions for the 2015 season’s national anthem performers will be Saturday, February 28 at the Dayton Mall (Center Court) from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 1 at the Mall at Fairfield Commons (Main Court) from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The winners will perform the national anthem at Dragons games throughout the season, with the grand prize winner performing at Opening Day 2015 before the Dragons host the South Bend Cubs at Fifth Third Field on Sunday, April 12 at 4 p.m.
The first 300 entrants who pre-registered for this event have received a scheduled tryout time. If one of our pre-registered performers is not present when their performance number comes up, or if we run ahead of schedule, we will pull performers from our standby list. To register as a standby performer, you must come to the Saturday, February 28 tryouts at the Dayton Mall or the Sunday, March 1 tryouts at the Mall at Fairfield Commons. You will receive a standby number, and we will call this number when a spot becomes available. Standby performers are not guaranteed a chance to audition.
A panel of local citizens including Dayton Daily News columnists and editors, city officials and community leaders will be judging the event. The panel will make its selections based on voice quality, creative style, stage presence and appearance.
