Walton High’s Jazz Band performed last night (Dec. 7) for the Chautauqua Nursing and Rehab residents during their 2nd annual Tree Lighting ceremony.  The Jazz Ensemble played a variety of music which included holiday music to help the residents celebrate the winter holidays in their facility.  All staff and residents were very appreciative of our students as they performed in the main dining hall for about 35 minutes.  

The Jazz Band will perform again this Saturday night (Dec. 9) in front of St. Agatha's Church during the Reflections Lights Around the Lakeyard to conclude their week-long canned food drive to help the church.  The ensemble will play from 5-7:30pm.
