Marian Catholic Bands

Reputation for Excellence

Marian Catholic has one of the most highly regarded concert and marching band programs in the United States. Both the concert and marching bands are known from coast to coast as leaders among high school band programs. The band's educational and competitive philosophies have been used as models for band programs across the country.

The success of the Marian Catholic bands can be attributed to its core values:

The pursuit of excellence;
The pursuit of art;
A fearless willingness to try new things and take risks for the sake of art;
An unrelenting work ethic that allows students to achieve far more than they (or their parents) thought they could;
A belief in and reliance on student leadership;
and PRIDE: Personal Responsibility in Daily Effort.

Almighty Father, incline thine ear:
Bless us and all those who have gathered here.
Thine angel send us who shall defend us all
And fill with grace all who dwell in this place.
