Musical groups from all three Canton Schools performed at the Canton Senior Club's annual Holiday Extravaganza Thursday.
Groups included the jazz combo and concert choir from Canton Intermediate School, a brass choir and chamber singers from Canton Middle School and the freshmen chorus and jazz combo from Canton High School. Students from Cherry Brook Primary School also performed for the club.
The groups played a few standards and many holiday selections. During the Cherry Brook performance, seniors joined in with the fun, performing many of the same motions used by the kids.
Superintendent Kevin Case told the club that talented students, parental and community support and gifted teachers were the three key elements of an excellent music program.
As part of the festivities, Margaret Sangster also presented music department chairman Tom Scavone a copy of the original score for John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" march as well as a copy of a booklet that showed the drum her father used while playing in Sousa's band.
Sangster had previously donated the drum to Canton High School.
Scavone thanked her for the gifts and told those in attendance that the schools have approximately 20 musical groups.
"Basically what you're seeing is a sampling of our program," he said.
