  • Fill My Spot: Andrew Morgan

    Andrew3.jpgCrown Age-Out Andrew Morgan says Fill My Spot!

    In 2013, when we were in Clovis, California, another tuba player and I were unloading tubas from under the bus. Some young fans came up to us with programs and pens in hand asking if we would sign their programs. That stands out to me because it shows me how big of an impact we are having on young musicians. They look up to us as if we were famous musicians when in reality, I’m just a normal everyday tuba player from a small town in South Carolina. That is what Crown did for me when I was younger and now I get the opportunity to do that for young kids today. If you are ready to make an impact on young musicians then you can Fill My Spot!

    If Crown can give someone like me a chance, they will definitely give you a chance. Crown taught me character, responsibility, self confidence, hard work, and determinatiom. But most importantly, whatever you do in life do it with passion and put your whole heart into it. If you're apprehensive about auditioning for the colorguard, brass, or percussion don't be. We have the most talented staff in the world and whatever the outcome of your time here is, even if it's just one camp, it will surely be the best time of your life. Come to Crown and Fill My Spot!
