All Wesley students who perform on a brass, woodwind, percussion or rhythm section instrument as well as visual performers are welcome to join the Wolverine Marching Band.The Wesley College Wolverine Marching Band is one of fastest growing and most active student groups on campus. Composed of students from almost all majors and disciplines, it combines the best in musical performance with clean, corps style marching in a fun college atmosphere.

Performance opportunities include:
• All standard marching wind instruments

• Symphonic Band (Spring only) The Wesley College Symphonic Band comprises the finest wind and percussion players from campus and the central Delaware region. Using the best literature from the Renaissance to the present day, the ensemble operates as a fully modern band. Repertoire is selected to expose performers to a wide range of musical languages, as well as a variety of technical, intellectual, and aesthetic challenges, enhancing the development of students and professionals alike. Section seating in the ensemble is rotated from piece to piece, giving many players solo opportunities and all performers a diversity of experiences.
