The Boilermaker Road Race is holding a competition to find 7 people to sing an a cappella version of the National Anthem at various 2017 Boilermaker events. Anyone participating must sing a traditional version of the National Anthem and be able to complete the song within one minute and thirty-five seconds.


We will have a panel of local music professionals to judge the competition and the winning contestants will be assigned an event and receive Boilermaker clothing to wear during their performance.


The competition will take place in Room 225 of the IT Building at MVCC on Saturday, May 13 from 12:00 – 2:00pm. To schedule a performance time in this year's competition please call the Boilermaker Road Race office at (315) 731-3701 and leave callback information. We will also accept walk-ins but please but please arrive before 2pm.


"The vocal talent in, and around, the Mohawk Valley is incredible," said Judy Ingalls, Boilermaker Special Events Director. "It is always a pleasure for us to help showcase what they have to offer on Boilermaker weekend."


Winners will perform at the following Boilermaker venues: the Utica National Kids' Run, Wal-mart Walk, Bank of America Youth Olympics, The Fountainhead Volunteer Party, Carbone 5K Race and Price Chopper Post Race Party.


"It's always a tough decision when choosing the winners," said Jackie Carbone, Boilermaker National Anthem Competition Coordinator. "Each winning contestant in the competition will be assigned an event and will receive Boilermaker clothing to wear during their performance."
