Dominican College’s a cappella group Pitches and Cream will be singing the National Anthem at the Mets Game at Cit Field on Saturday, September 3, 2016. The group auditioned back in March and was featured on Channel 2 News.
Musical Director of Pitches and Cream Lydia Maynard, Ph.D. said this will be the largest audience Pitches and Cream has ever performed for – by far. “The stadium capacity is about 45,000 people and it’s Labor Day Weekend and the game is against the Nationals,” she said. “We are excited about it.”
Pitches and Cream was formed three years ago by Maynard, who is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Dominican College. “When I first interviewed here, I asked if they had an a capella group and they said ‘no’ so I knew I wanted to start one when I started working here.” Maynard minored in music in college and has always enjoyed performing.
Tickets to the Mets game are available for $25 and transportation will be provided. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
