A Griswold woman will be making a dream come true on Sunday afternoon when she performs the national anthem before thousands of fans at Fenway Park.
Sharon Brouillard will be singing during Connecticut Day at Fenway before game three of the Red Sox-Astros series.
Brouillard, a Norwich native who lives in Griswold and works for Mystic Seaport, often sings at Seaport events, including ceremonies commemorating the Charles W. Morgan, according to Congressman Joe Courtney.
After hearing her sing, Courtney connected her with the Red Sox organization about the possibility of singing at Fenway.
“Having heard her perform numerous times at Mystic Seaport, I was happy to connect her with the Red Sox and I know she will make us all proud—just like the Morgan’s restoration and voyage did this summer."
“I am humbled and honored to be able to represent the State of Connecticut for Connecticut Day at Fenway,” Brouillard said in a news release. “As a long-time Red Sox fan, this is indeed a dream come true for me. Bucket List item…Check! Go Sox!”
First pitch is at 1:35 p.m.
“We are pleased to welcome Sharon Brouillard to Fenway Park to sing the national anthem as we celebrate Connecticut Day,” Red Sox EVP/COO Sam Kennedy said in a statement. “Her performance provides a way for us to show our appreciation to the fans we love in the Constitution State.”
