About the Music Department
When you join the music department at Crown College you will be able to develop your musicianship as you grow personally and spiritually in an invigorating Christian community.
Performance is a valued element of Crown's music degrees. The College Choir, Chamber Choir, Women's Choir, Crown Brass and Crown Orchestra are the ensembles in which students can participate to sharpen their skills while performing brilliant music. Every two years, the College and Chamber Choirs travel overseas, most often to Europe. Students may also take part in traveling music or drama teams. Besides the annual Christmas in Crown Chapel, the music department also presents a spring musical, recitals, and special musical events throughout the year.
Worship Arts majors receive hands-on training in ministry. A key part of their program is the six-month internship in the second semester of their junior year. While working alongside a worship pastor in the U.S. or abroad, students prepare for real-life ministry while still a student.
