EASTLAKE, Ohio — The Lake County Captains are searching for National Anthem singers for their 2013 home games.

Tryouts to sing the anthem will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Great Lakes Mall in Mentor. The tryouts are part of the “Shop Lake County” show with the Lake County Chambers of Commerce and the Great Lakes Mall on February 23 and 24.

Both groups and individuals are welcome to try out, including those who have performed the anthem in past seasons.

Tryout openings are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals and groups will be required to sing the anthem live, in a capella and without lyric sheets. Potential anthem singers will then be judged according to lyrical accuracy, voice quality, presentation, voice projection and overall performance quality.

The Captains will only hold one live audition for the 2013 season. Performers who are unable to try out can send a CD or MP3 to the Lake County Captains offices and addressed to Drew LaFollette at 35300 Vine St., Eastlake, Ohio 44095.
