Thank you for choosing to sponsor a member of Carolina Crown!
Carolina Crown was established in 1989 by a group of former drum corps members, business professionals and music educators that wanted to establish a world-class organization that would "develop lifelong excellence in young people through a superior and challenging performing arts education experience." The corps is currently comprised of over 150 musicians and dancers between the ages of 14 and 21. Our members come from nearly 27 states and 3 countries to perform with Crown. At the end of the audition process, nearly 500 students will have auditioned for the 15o performance spots that make the national touring company.
Each member is required to raise approximately $5,000.00 for tuition and touring fees. These fees cover all food, transportation and housing expenses during the three months of spring training and tour. It also includes uniforms, musical instruments, equipment, and months of detailed musical and movement instruction.
Please note, donations made to individual members are not considered tax deductible.
The CrownSTORE is more than a music store... We are one of the driving forces behind Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps. The proceeds from all purchases go directly to funding the corps and help to further our mission of “Developing Lifelong Excellence in young people”. We achieve this though performance opportunities and a commitment to education in the performing arts with core values of Integrity, Commitment, Respect and Excellence.
