Calling young singers: Perform at the New Haven Open at Yale
Know a budding Caruso or Beyoncé? Young crooners will have an opportunity to shine in the spotlight at the the New Haven Open at Yale presented by First Niagara.
The tournament is holding an open casting call for children ages 12 and under on Tuesday, July 26, 4-8 p.m. at the Shubert Theater, 247 College St. Participants will have an opportunity to compete for the chance to sing “America the Beautiful” at the tournament, a WTA event that is part of the Olympus U.S. Open Series, to be held August 18-27 at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale, 45 Yale Ave.
For the third year of the competition, singer, actress and former Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon will be part of a panel of celebrity judges. The Cheetah Girls were a Disney Channel staple, recording six albums and filming three films between 2003 and 2008. Joining her as judges will be WNTH’s Sonia Baghdady, KISS 95.7 on-air talent Brady and a First Niagara representative.
“The annual casting call for kids to sing at the New Haven Open is a great way to encourage local children to get involved in both music and sports,” says Anne Worcester, tournament director. “The talent that comes out of this event is always outstanding, and I am looking forward to hearing this year’s winners.”
All winners will receive free tickets to the New Haven Open.
