The Western & Southern open is accepting video auditions from youngsters ages 7-17 through June 14 on its Casting Call Facebook page. Videos can be of any song, but must be at least 30 seconds long and sung in an a cappella format.
A limited number of performers will be selected to sing live on Fountain Square between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Friday, June 28 in front of a panel of celebrity judges. Tennis courts will be set up on the square, with other activities and giveaways offered.
“This is always one of the highlights of the summer as we get ready for the Western & Southern Open,” said Will Sikes, the tournament’s director of marketing and communications. “The talent we have in Cincinnati is amazing, and we are thrilled to be able to give kids and young adults the chance to perform at one of the top tennis events in the world.”
The tournament, set for Aug. 10-18 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, boasts an international television audience of more than 60 million fans and is broadcast domestically on Tennis Channel, ESPN2 and CBS
