Oh, say can you sing?
The Cape Cod Baseball League and Cape Cod Mall are calling all budding songsters to an open audition at the mall on Saturday, June 26th. Three winners will be selected to each perform the national anthem at a Hyannis Harbor Hawks home game in July -- game dates are July 11th, 18th and 25th.
Contestants must be at least 14 years-old and the audition will be limited to the first 50 registrants. The audition will begin promptly at 11 a.m. on the 26th. Each participant will have the chance to belt out their rendition of the anthem on stage in front of a panel of local celebrity judges and spectators.
The panel of judges includes Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce CEO Wendy Northcross; Barnstable Patriot sports reporter Kathy Szmit (an amateur singer who has performed the anthem at several Cape League games in the past); President of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod Maggie Van Sciver; and Laurie Pfeifer from the Cape Cod Baseball League. “Johnny Quahog”, the iconic Cape Cod character and star of Cape Cod Quahog Day, will emcee the event. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the audition.
Each contestant will also receive a gift as a thank you for participating. In addition to the chance to perform the anthem at a game, the three winners will receive a basket of goodies from Cape Cod Mall retailers and the Cape Cod Baseball League.
The Cape Cod Mall is located on Route 132 in Hyannis. For more information, call 508-771-0200, visit www.capecodmall.com.
