Students Represent Methacton in Inter-County Band


Methacton students participated in the 63rd annual Inter-County Band festival that was held at Perkiomen Valley Middle School East on January 26, 2019.  The students are in grades 7, 8, and 9 and represent some of the best musicians in the Arcola and 9th grade MHS band programs.


Inter-County Band is an approximately 130-member concert band made up from eleven area middle schools and junior high schools from Montgomery, Chester, and Berks Counties.  Students are chosen by their band director from their top music students in grades seven through nine.
