The Boston Celtics are looking for talented vocalists and musicians to
perform the National Anthem at the team's home games throughout the
2005-2006 NBA season.
Talented groups, instrumentalists, children and other unique
performers are invited to attend the auditions on Tuesday, Oct. 18
from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the TD Banknorth Garden's Legends Sports Club.
One lucky fan will be selected to perform the National Anthem at the
following evening's Celtics preseason game against the Chicago Bulls.
In addition, the fan with the best audition, as determined by the
judges, will be invited to perform the National Anthem before the
Celtics second game of the season, against the Eastern Conference
champion Detroit Pistons.
Auditions will be open call and on a first-come, first-served basis.
Upon arrival, each contestant will receive a number and be asked to
perform for judges when their number is called, which will include a
celebrity judging panel consisting of Greg Hill of WAAF, Kelly Malone
of Mix 98.5, Greg Dickerson of FSN New England and Celtics legend JoJo
White. Auditions are not open to the public, but a limited number of
friends and family will be admitted with each participant. All
auditions will be acapella, and there will be no accompaniments.
