Round Rock Express holding National Anthem tryouts Monday, February 10

Oh, say can you sing? Calling all solo or group singers and musicians, the Round Rock Express will hold auditions at #DellDiamond from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Monday, February 10 to see if you can perform the National Anthem at a 2020 #RRExpress game! While the Express host 70 games each season, less than 50 spots remain at the time of auditions due to off-season bookings of large groups, such as school and church choirs.

Guidelines for your/your group’s performance of the National Anthem include:

  • Performance must be kept under 90 seconds
  • All vocal submissions must be a cappella
  • Instrumental auditions are welcome
  • National Anthem should be performed in traditional, military style with little-to-no creative variation
  • National Anthem must be performed from memory as reading lyrics during tryout or gameday performance is prohibited

Individuals and groups wishing to audition must fill out an application form and bring it with them to their audition.

Performers will audition in front of a panel of judges, including Laurie Winckel, owner of Vocal Edge Voice Studio with locations in Hutto and Georgetown. Winckel has coached several past Express National Anthem performers and has held numerous workshops leading up to the auditions. All participants will be notified whether or not they have been invited to perform the Anthem within two weeks of the auditions. If selected, the performer must sing the same version that they auditioned at their scheduled game.

Those who cannot attend the open auditions but wish to perform can submit a video recording of their audition via email to Express Director of Ballpark Entertainment Steve Richards at Video auditions will only be evaluated after all in-person performers have been scheduled and notified.
