The Mifflin County High School Marching Band was back in competition on Saturday night in Mechanicsburg after being forced to take a week off. Band Director Art Belfiore said, “On Friday, October 8th, I found out there would be 15 students in the marching band who would not be able to practice or perform for a week. That forced me to shut down the program until this past Thursday and meant we would not be going to the Red Land football game or the Williamsport Millionaire Band Competition. It was difficult to tell the students we would have to stop practicing and performing but it had to be done. We were able to restart on Thursday and had a great rehearsal. The Senior Night performance on Friday was a wonderful final performance for our 20 Seniors and that carried over to Saturday’s performance in Mechanicsburg.”
