and into the moment.”

We believe the creation and expression of music is the portal to all things good and beautiful in the world. Our sole (and soul) purpose is to offer a lasting, life-changing experience for musicians and music lovers alike. 

 Welcome to the Crown, where you will get to the heart of why you play. Every summer we invite world-renowned musicians from across the country to work and play with us. As a participant you will live with them, learn from them, play live in front of hundreds of people with them, and jam until the early morning hours with them. Whether you're a beginner or a professional we have workshops to fit your interests, expand your abilities, and quite possibly change the way you play forever.
