If you are a musician, you could be standing on the diamond at Trustmark Park performing for hundreds this upcoming Mississippi Braves’ baseball season.
The Mississippi Braves will hold tryouts to find talented singers and musicians to perform the national anthem for each of their regular season home games at Trustmark Park.
Tryouts will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at Trustmark Park.
Those that wish to audition should come prepared to perform the entirety of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Participants will be judged on a cappella and acoustic instrumental renditions only, as no electric or amplified instruments can be utilized for game day performances.
Individual singers, instrumentalists, and bands of all ages are welcome to audition.
There is no appointment necessary and performers will audition in the order in which they arrive.
The Braves’ opening night at home for the 2019 season is April 10.
The Braves are also looking for energetic, friendly, and enthusiastic people to fill the mascot position. If you would like to audition for this role, tryouts are at the same time and location as the anthem tryouts.
A suit will not be provided for your audition, so bring your own, or be prepared to audition without a suit. Come prepared with a 30-second routine of your choice as well as being ready for an improv performance.
Stay up to date on all things Mississippi Weekend!
