WVU Marching Band

The award-winning Mountaineer Marching Band enjoys the reputation as one of the largest and most active organizations on the WVU campus. The 340-member “Pride of West Virginia” has performed throughout the United States from nationally televised Bowl games to Presidential inaugurations and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Students in the band represent nearly every college and major course of study and excel in their studies with the vast majority in majors other than music. Members are able to manage the time demands while balancing their other academic responsibilities while performing at a high level and making great friends.

The esprit de corps of the band together with pageantry of their performances have made The Pride one of the most-recognized and respected ambassadors for WVU both on campus and throughout the state. All these features contribute to the success of the “Pride of West Virginia” and show why it is considered one of the premier collegiate marching bands in the nation.
