The Utah Jazz would like to invite you to participate in national anthem auditions for the 2012-13 NBA season.

The auditions will be held on Friday, Oct. 5 at the EnergySolutions Arena, 301 West South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT beginning at 9:00 a.m. and will run through 1:00 p.m. This will be the only day to tryout.

*Please enter in the main doors located on the North East side, above the ticket lobby of the EnergySolutions Arena

Audition order is organized on a first come first serve basis. Assigned audition numbers will be given upon registration. The audition is open to the general public, for individuals and / or groups.

If you cannot make the live audition, a recorded CD version of you singing the anthem may be mailed into Meikle LaHue at the EnergySolutions Arena. All CD’s must be received by October 5th. It is, however, strongly suggested that you attend the live audition. Mail to:

Utah Jazz National Anthem Auditions
C/O Meikle LaHue
301 West South Temple
Salt Lake City, UT 84101

All participants in the audition will be notified by e-mail whether they have been invited to perform the national anthem.

Please consider the following when auditioning:

The Utah Jazz requires that the National Anthem be sung in a cappella and 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 that serve or have served our country, and not about the individual or group singing the piece. Please sing the anthem in a straight forward manner with the upmost respect and honor for what the song stands for. If selected, the performer must sing the same version at their scheduled game, as they performed during auditions. Professional attire is required.

For more information, please contact Meikle LaHue at (801) 325-2553.

Thank you for sharing your talents with our fans.
