LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)— Lafayette Jefferson High School is hosting the Xtreme Choir Showdown.

Choirs from all over Indiana and some from Illinois have traveled to the Greater Lafayette area.

The competition is held in the Rhorman Performing Arts Center.

Nearly 16 schools are participating in today's competition ranging from middle school to high school.

Lafayette Jefferson High School had one of the first show choirs during the '80s.

This tradition is one that will continue to ring through the halls for generations to come.

"By hosting a competition the kids learn about what it means to be a good host, good citizens and the responsibilities that go with that," said Head Choir Director of Lafayette Jefferson High School Michael Benett.

The event lasted until midnight on Saturday.
