(HERSHEY, PA) — With the upcoming hockey season rapidly approaching, the HERSHEY BEARS will be holding auditions for National Anthem soloists. The BEARS will have a select number of available dates for soloists to sing at the beginning of home games. Please note, local choruses and other special guests may perform the National Anthem on the other open dates.
Soloists must provide an audio and/or video recording containing a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, and O' Canada. Due to pre-game time restraints, each rendition should last no longer than one minute and thirty seconds.
After reviewing all recordings the BEARS staff will contact 10 to 12 finalists and conduct live auditions at the end of August. Audition recordings will be accepted until Wednesday, August 20, 2008.
Interested candidates should send their full name, address and telephone number with recordings to:
