Inglemoor is known for its music program. Its marching band has won many different awards, and its Wind Ensemble is nationally known, playing at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in April 2015 along with the Inglemoor Orchestra. The marching band performs during football season, with halftime shows consisting of the high-step marching style. During the boys' and girls' basketball season the program supports each team with pep bands. In the Vancouver Heritage Festival of 2017, five of Inglemoor's instrumental groups and three vocal groups all won First Place Gold in their respective categories, sweeping all of the sections they entered in. In 2018, the well known orchestra and jazz director Jim "Jice" Rice retired his long time job as teacher and WMEA chairman. He is succeeded by new director Charlie Fix, and band director Ted Christensen.
