WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Area high school students are ready to hit a high note this weekend.

The 28th annual Purdue Jazz Festival features concerts, clinics and competitions.

The festival began Thursday night with a showcase concert by area high school jazz bands.


The Purdue Jazz Band rounded out the night.

One high school musician says it's always a weekend the bands look forward to.

"We've been preparing, oh, it's been awhile. It's been multiple weeks and after schools, and all that stuff and practicing at home, yeah. So you're ready for it? Yeah," said Benton Central Junior-Senior High School student Aaron Sandel.

The festival will take place all weekend. The bands that performed Thursday night will compete on Saturday.
