(Omaha, NE) -- Auditions are now open for performers for the National Anthem at College World Series games this summer.
College World Series of Omaha, Inc., is now accepting video submissions for the 2021 College World Series. Fourteen videos will be chosen, with the top 12 airing at the start of games 1-12. Two additional videos will also be selected in the event that there are thirteenth and fourteenth games.
Auditions are open to any soloist, duo or group in the country. Submissions can be a cappella or with accompaniment or audio engineering tools.
Unlike previous years, performers will not need to be in Omaha at any point in the process. “While we’ve welcomed nationwide talent in the past, 2021’s unique format allows more people to apply,” said Kathryn Morrissey, Executive Director of CWS of Omaha, Inc. “There are no travel costs or time commitments. There’s no pressure to perform live, in-person in front of thousands of fans. Anyone can throw their hat in the ring.”
Applicants must complete the online form at cwsomaha.com and submit a video link. Video files will not be accepted, nor will videos older than one year. Horizontal videos centered on the performer(s) are recommended as the videos will be played at a 4:3 ratio. Additional video guidelines are provided at cwsomaha.com.
The deadline for submitting an application and video link is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 18. Winners will be notified via email by mid-May.
The 2021 College World Series is scheduled to run from June 19-29/30.
