Carolina Theatre Greensboro The Crown

The UNCG PopTech program was started in Fall 2022. Officially known as a Bachelor of Music degree in Popular Music and Technology, the program offers students the chance to develop as performers, singer-songwriters, producers, beat-makers, and composers, all while strengthening their skills and knowledge in working with music technology. The PopTech program is at the forefront of initiatives across the country that welcome young musicians to university music studies from fields like hip-hop, rap, R&B, pop, rock, film/video/gaming music, and more.

These student musicians are serious about their work, and they are very good at it! The showcase concert will feature original work and covers in a super wide array of settings: from bands to soloists and from playback beats to videos.

Tickets are $12 Adults and $9 Seniors, Military, Students.
Ticket Commissions: $3 processing fee plus NC sales tax

The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
