Ron Hardin Talks Marching
Crown Visual Caption Supervisor, Ron Hardin, has always been a team first leader. The opportunity for him to join Crown in 2012 was unique in that he could bring his team with him and work together again with people who were not only great friends, but also people he had personally marched with in drum corps.
Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Ron started in music playing the trumpet, eventually switching to trombone.
