TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - High school bands came together to show off their talents on Saturday!
That's with the 44th annual Jazz Festival.
The concert was held at Indiana State University.
Bands included high schools from both Indiana and Illinois. Each performance was scored by judges.
While taking home a win is always nice, judges say it's about getting experience.
"The idea is when they leave here they know more than they knew when they got here," said ISU Professor Randy Mitchell, "That they've learned something new that in performance or in something about the music that helped them play better."
Mitchell says the event also gave students a chance to visit ISU's campus.
