GRAND PRAIRIE, Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie will hold its annual National Anthem auditions on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Auditions will be held outdoors (weather permitting). Soloists, duets, choirs, instrumentalists and groups are all invited to audition.
Anyone interested must audition in person (no exceptions) in order to perform the National Anthem during Lone Star Park’s 2021 Thoroughbred Season, which begins April 22 and continues through July 11. All auditions will be walk-up only (no reservations).
Auditions will be held in Lone Star Park winner’s circle and each performer will be recorded and shown on the track’s infield Daktronics screen. Also, as a reminder, expect to hear a half second delay in the sound system during your performance.
Hopefuls must perform the “The Star-Spangled Banner” – a cappella in two minutes or less. You must memorize the lyrics before the audition. Recorded performances will be reviewed and judged by Lone Star Park officials on a later date.
All participants will be notified via email by April 15, 2021 whether or not they were chosen to perform. If you are chosen to perform, the date and information will be included in your email notification. Each person selected to perform will receive four (4) reserved seats on their performance date. Lone Star Park is located one half-mile north on Belt Line Road off Interstate 30 at 1000 Lone Star Parkway in Grand Prairie – 12 miles west of Dallas and 20 miles east of Fort Worth.
