Crown To Reveal Show and Uniform at Nation Ford High School
Carolina Crown is excited to announce that the 2016 Preview Show date and location have been changed to Sunday, June 19, at Nation Ford High School in Fort Mill, SC. This move has been made to help promote the Nation Ford HS Marching Band's recently announced invitation to this years Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. "The Fort Mill community has been tremendously generous to Crown over the years, helping us with camp housing and rehearsal space," said Executive Director, Jim Coates. "Crown cares about our neighborhood and this event gives us the chance to give back to them and support one of our important local band programs." The 2016 Crown show and uniform will be revealed along with the 2016 Hall of Fame Class.
This exciting day is open to everyone and will kick off at 6:00pm at the Nation Ford High School football stadium where the Nation Ford Band will have open concessions for fans, friends and family members. The school is located at 1400 A O Jones Blvd, Fort Mill, SC 29715.
Fans are invited to come by the school throughout the day to watch as Crown rehearses their 2016 show, Relentless. The corps will reveal the new 2016 uniforms and show at 7:30pm. The show title and musical selections were just released to the public. Members begin learning the drill and choreography for the show as Spring Training begins this Saturday, May 21, at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. Percussionists moved in early and have been rehearsing locally in Fort Mill since this past Sunday.
Prior to Crown taking the field, the 2016 class of the Carolina Crown Hall of Fame will be announced. The first Crown HOF class (seen below) was revealed at the 2015 preview show, and we are excited to enter into the second year of celebrating the alumni, leaders, volunteers and friends who have helped shape the Crown Organization over the last 27 years.
