National Anthem Auditions for 2019 County Fair

The Washington County Fair would like to invite you to participate in National Anthem auditions for the 2019 County Fair.

The auditions will be held on Saturday, June 15 from 9am – 12pm at the Grafton Building at Legacy Park / County Fairgrounds. This will be the only day to try out.

Legacy Park — Grafton Building:
5500 West 700 South
Hurricane, Utah 84737
(Google Maps)

Audition order is organized on a first-come, first-served basis. Assigned audition numbers will be given upon registration, and we will be unable to accommodate number switching. The audition is open to the general public, for individuals and/or very small groups (eight people or fewer).

There will be 6 – 8 renditions of the National Anthem performed over the 4 day event, so several individuals will be chosen.

All participants in the audition will be notified by email whether they have been invited to perform the National Anthem.

Please consider the following when auditioning:

  • It is required that the National Anthem be sung a cappella and in a traditional manner — with no styling or individual musical interpretation. Please keep in mind that the National Anthem is about honoring America and the men and women who serve, or have served, our country, and not about the individual or small group singing the piece. Please sing the anthem in a straightforward manner with the utmost respect and honor for what the song stands for. If selected, the performer(s) must sing the same version at his/her/their scheduled time in the same manner as at the auditions.
  • Professional attire is required. You are also required to bring an 8 ½” x 11” headshot of yourself / your group at the time of auditioning.

For more information, please contact Ed Tracey at (435) 227-5110.

Thank you for sharing your talents with our county!
