Rochester, N.Y. - Despite the rain Saturday, people packed the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival to hear some of the youngest performers.

Some of them were on the Jazz Festival stage for the first time.

Others, like senior percussionist Ryan Barski played with the Honeoye Falls-Lima High School Jazz Band for the last time.

"Every year's a little bit different for me, because I hold different roles," said Barski. "Every year's a little emotional, but this year's a little extra because I'm a senior, I'm graduating."

Barski is going to Eastman School of Music in the fall.

The festival runs through July 1.
