The Wallington High School Marching Band was originally founded by Band Director Fernando Arace in the late 1950s. The band continued to grow in the 1960s and 1970s under the direction of Bill Costa and marched regularly at all WHS Football Games, town parades, and in New York City for the Pulaski Day Parade.
Unfortunately, marching band numbers dwindled in the late 1990s and early 2000s and the marching was disbanded.
In the fall of 2018, the Wallington Marching Band returned after 10 years and performed once again at a Wallington High Football Game. The newly organized band consisted of 41 members and high stepped proudly down the field at WHS.
The Wallington Marching Band is open to all WHS students in grades 7-12 and is always looking to recruit new members. The marching band participates in the Wallington Memorial Day Parade and other town functions.
Our band marches in a distinctive high step style similar to that of Big 10 Marching Bands like Michigan State and Ohio State.
