MCHS Marching Band wins regional championship

WILLIAMSPORT — The Mifflin County High School marching band traveled to Williamsport Area High School on Saturday night for the Tournament of Bands (TOB) Susquehanna Valley Region 4 Championship competition.

At the end of the night, the marching band won their fourth consecutive TOB Region 4 title in Group 3-A Class in the last five years — no championship event was held in 2020 due to COVID 19.

Berwick High School’s marching band finished in second place with a score of 85.610. MCHS also won the specialty awards for best music, best visual, best drum line and best color guard.

Band Director Art Belfiore said, “the band had to rehearse inside today due to the rain but had a great performance even though we could not get out on the field for more than 10-15 minutes. The group is really practicing and performing well over the last two weeks, and the quality of performance is a testament to that fact.”

He added that marching band members look forward “ACC’s” next Sunday.

The 90.570 score puts the MCHS Band in first place going into TOB’s Atlantic Coast Championship event next Sunday night.

That event will be held on Landis Field at Central Dauphin Middle School in Harrisburg. The MCHS Band expects to perform at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the gate.
