Salesianum has had a music program since the opening of the school in 1903, and a marching band since the 1940's, making one of the longest-running programs in the State of Delaware. The Marching Band plays an important role in Salesianum's legendary school spirit and is comprised of Salesianum students along with students from sister schools, Padua and Ursuline Academies. The band is active during the football season and develops a spectacular new field show each year. Additionally, the band represents the school at parades, competitions and special events throughout the school year. Under the direction of Mr. Brian Cox, Salesianum's marching band has traveled locally and regionally, and has won numerous awards over the past twenty years, including multiple best percussion, best drum major and best overall performance.
