National anthem tryouts for World Series are April 26
LEWISTON, Idaho - Lewis-Clark State College will hold its sixth annual version of "American Idol" auditions for national anthem singers and musicians on April 26. The winners will perform during the 56th annual Avista NAIA World Series held May 25 through June 1.
The tryouts will run from 4:30-6 p.m. and will held in front of the main grandstand at LCSC's Harris Field. The tryouts are free and open to the public, and winners and participants from last year are urged to try out again. Performers do not need to register ahead of time.
At the tryout, all contestants will be asked to fill out a brief information sheet that includes name and phone number before either singing or performing the US national anthem. Singers will perform without music, unless accompanied by musicians.
Various college officials will serve as judges, and contestants will be informed of the judges' decisions the following week.
Some performers who are not selected to sing during the Series may be invited to perform at LCSC home athletic events during the 2012-13 academic year.
Anyone interested just needs to show up any time 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 at a World Series game.
