The Thomas Worthington Band has enjoyed a long and rich heritage of musical excellence.

The marching, The Pride of Cardinal Country, is an extra-curricular, after school-only ensemble. Students in the ensemble have met the eligibility requirements dictated by the board of education. Students maintain their core values of team work, individual responsibility, and pride in all work.

The Pride of Cardinal Country has maintained high standards, appearing consistently in the OMEA State Marching Band Finals since 2000. The band program provides a large variety of learning and performance opportunities for students.

Four concert band classes are offered to accommodate the nearly 300 members. The program also boasts two jazz bands, a winter percussion ensemble, a winter guard team, and a pit orchestra for musicals.
