Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Putnam County Arts Festival event was changed to keep Putnam County students and families safe.
2021 Putnam County Band and Choir
Students in Putnam County were given the opportunity to submit audition music for the Putnam All-County Band and Choir. Based on auditions, students were selected for participation in the band or choir. Due to safety regulations, there will be no performance this year. The 4 year All-County Band and Choir members are highlighted in a virtual slide show. Click the link below to access the slides.
