The Carolina Crown organization initially began as the Charlotte Drum Corps Association. The initial organization was started by a local group of drum corps enthusiasts who gathered on an irregular basis to discuss and watch drum corps. Crown has since been DCI Top 12 Finalists 23 times and won the DCI World Championship in 2013.

ABOUT THE CORPS

In 1990, with only 61 members and a passion for drum corps, Carolina Crown elected to compete in the Open Class (now known as World Class). Thanks to a partnership with the Parks & Recreation Department, and the establishment of a partnership with the Mecklenburg Council of the Boy Scouts of America as Explorer Post #588, along with a lot of luck and a lot of help, the corps was able to take the field for competition. In 1995, Crown moved from Charlotte to Belmont, NC. Following the 1997 season, the corps relocated to its present home of Fort Mill, South Carolina.
