The Worthington Middle School Band program currently has 160 6th-7th-8th grade students participating in the middle school band program. Our performance groups include the 6th Grade Concert Band, the 7th Grade Concert Band, and the 8th Grade Concert Band. There are also 3 jazz bands divided by grade which perform at local functions, middle school events and a jazz night featuring grade 5 through grade12 musicians.
All 6th-7th-8th grade students participate in marching band for the King Turkey Day Parade, a September hometown tradition, as well as the Fall Indoor Marching Band Show which also features the 5th grade band and the high school marching band. This year the middle school marching band theme is "Star Wars".
Our students come from diverse backgrounds and ethnic origins in the community of Worthington. Our community embraces and celebrates the diversity and our music department appreciates the opportunity the students have to interact with such a wide spectrum of cultures.
