2015-16 National Anthem Auditions

by Bill Lea

Auditions are currently closed for the 2015-16 season.
Further details concerning anthem auditions for the 2016-17 season will be provided at a later date.

The Utah Jazz would like to invite you to participate in national anthem auditions for the 2015-16 NBA season.

The auditions will be held on Friday, Sept. 25th 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 through the Ticket Lobby/Will Call entrance (at the bottom of the outside steps) on the Northeast corner of EnergySolutions Arena.

Audition order is organized on a first come first serve basis. Assigned audition numbers will be given upon registration and we will be unable to accomodate number switching. The audition is open to the general public, for individuals and / or very small groups (8 people or less).

If you cannot make the live audition, a recorded CD version of you singing the anthem may be mailed into Carly Robbins at the EnergySolutions Arena. All CD’s must be received by September 25th. It is, however, strongly suggested that you attend the live audition. Mail to:

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

Or submit via email to

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 small 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 Carly Robbins at (801) 325-2526.

Thank you for sharing your talents with our fans.
