Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary Grade 9-10 Junior Jazz band member Justin Byfield plays the trumpet at the Surrey Envision Jazz Festival on Friday at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel.

The festival, in its 29th year, again welcomed upwards of 2,500 high school music students Feb. 11-13 from across the Northwest, who participated in adjudicated daytime performances and clinics.

There were also evening shows by jazz professionals such as The Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir, Night Crawlers, and the Campbell Ryga Quintet.
