Bellefonte High to host Marching Band Festival

The Bellefonte Area High School fine arts department will host the 2014 Centre/Clearfield County Marching Band Festival at 7 p.m. Saturday at Rogers Stadium.

Nine marching bands — from Bellefonte, Bald Eagle, Penns Valley, Clearfield, Curwensville, Glendale, Moshannon Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola and West Branch — will perform their 2014 halftime shows.

“This event is the showcase event for the high school marching bands in the area, giving them the opportunity to perform for others and the public in a band-only event,” said Luke Skerpon, director of Bellefonte middle and high school choirs.
