Shasta School has talent.

For the second straight year, students there had a chance to showcase their stuff to family, friends, faculty and teachers at the “Pasta and a Show” event in the multi-purpose building.

Proceeds go to the Shasta Community Club.

“This was an opportunity for our students to showcase their talents,” said Joette Marks, who is the special day class teacher at the school.

She and Casey Wilkerson coordinated the dinner and entertainment showcase.

 “Any (students) can do it. But they had to get their music approved,” Marks added.

Seth Ilog, for one, is no stranger performing in front of crowds. He and his band, Zephyr, have played at various events including the San Joaquin County Fair in the past year. They received further exposure while performing on local television.

Zephyr is part of G.K. Production’s stable of young musicians, ranging in age from 10 through 14.

A Shasta student, Ilog is the drummer for Zephyr.

Zephyr kicked off “Pasta and a Show,” and was followed by Elizabeth Acosta (Pray / Justin Beiber), Cerena Benson (Fix You / Cold Play), and McKenna Rankin and Danielle Gorman (Perfect / Pink).

Other performers included Kristina Glover (Jar of Hearts / Christina Perri); Leticia Hurtado (Black and White / Michael Jackson); DeVaunte Hightower (break dancing); Briana Hansen, Chelsea Bruch, Amanda Romaine, and Katie Hankins (Cha-Cha Slide); Drew Wilder (The Boys of Fall / Kenny Chesney); Alyssa Bruch and Sierra Dunham (Temporary Home / Carrie Underwood); Katie Hankins (Big City Dreams / Never Say Never); and DeVaunte Hightower and Leticia Hurtado (Beat It / Michael Jackson).

In addition, sixth-grade students performed Steve Martin’s “King Tut” while fourth-graders did a medley of “America,” “Oh, Susanna,” “Clementine,” and “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.”
