More than 140 of Mississippi's best high school musicians will soon be representing the state at an international competition in Canada.

The Mississippi Lion's All-State Band will take part in the Lion's International Parade this Saturday in Toronto.

The Mississippi Lion's Band has won Lion's International competitions 10 of the last 12 years and has won a total of 29 since 1951, which is more than any other band in the world.

Wednesday night, they'll perform a free public concert before they leave for Canada. It will take place at 6:30 at the Bush Fine Arts Auditorium on the Jones County Junior College campus.
