Curve anthem tryouts are next month
The Altoona Curve will hold open auditions for National Anthem performers at Country Club Mall in Cumberland, Md. on Feb. 1 and Altoona’s Logan Valley Mall on Feb. 8.
Both tryout sessions begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. followed by singing from 10 a.m. until noon.
Individual singers or groups that wish to audition have the choice to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” and/or “God Bless America” on one of the two audition dates.
Lyrics will be provided upon request. No CDs, tapes, emails or digital submissions will be accepted. Those who have — or are –contacted by a member of the Curve front office staff do not need to attend a tryout session. Every person that sings at the auditions will receive a ticket voucher to a Curve home game in April or May.
The Curve’s 70-game home schedule at Peoples Natural Gas Field begins on Thursday, April 9 at 6 p.m. against the Erie SeaWolves, Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
