Lewis-Clark State College will be holding its fourth annual version of “American Idol” auditions for national anthem singers and musicians to perform during the 54th annual Avista NAIA World Series as well as for home athletic events throughout the 2010-11 academic year.
The tryouts will be held Thursday, April 15, and Friday, April 16, at 4:30-6 p.m. directly in front of the main grandstand at Harris Field or in the LCSC Activity Center if it is raining. The tryouts are free and open to the public of all ages, and winners and participants from previous years also are urged to try out again.
The tryouts will consist of filling out an information sheet about the performer that includes name and a phone number, and then either singing or performing the American national anthem. Singers will perform without music, unless accompanied by musicians, while both solo and group musicians trying out must be prepared to audition as well.
Various college officials will serve as judges during the tryouts and those trying out will be informed of the judges’ decisions during the following week.
No pre-registration is necessary. Anyone interested just needs to show up between 4:30-6 p.m., but should know the words to the national anthem. Contestants also must be able to sing in front of as many as 5,000 people prior to a World Series game.
For more information or if someone is interested but can’t make the allotted times, please contact Bert Sahlberg at (208) 792-2200 (office) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
