Six solo musicians and a rock group, all seniors at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, took the virtual stage on Zoom and YouTube Friday for a concert marking their final Friday theatre class with teacher Brooke Hardman Ditchfield. The class has been meeting online since mid-March due to the pandemic shutdown.

The Friday Afternoon Live Senior Spotlight Show was also a fund-raiser for the Island Food Pantry, which is assisting more families than ever this year. Ruby Suman, the opening performer, said her own family had received food from the pantry when she was a little girl.

“It’s a very vital thing to have on the Island, and I feel like not a lot of people realize how many people rely on it,” Ms. Suman said. “I wanted to give back to families who were struggling like my family did.”

Ms. Suman then presented a lustrous vocal version of Cole Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye, a fitting ballad for the bittersweet farewell to high school.

Next on the bill was clarinetist Anne Culbert, one of the show’s co-producers with Violet Cabot and Amelia Simmons. Bringing a tropical Brazilian ambiance to the program, Ms. Culbert played the Antônio Carlos Jobim bossa nova Wave, complete with a fluid improvised solo.

Ms. Culbert then introduced Simone Davis to perform I’m Here, the inspirational closing aria from Broadway musical The Color Purple.

“I believe I have inside of me/Everything that I need to live a bountiful life,” Ms. Davis sang. “And I’m thankful for everyday that I’m given/Both the easy and hard ones I’m livin’.”

While the first three seniors performed to backing tracks, Spencer Pogue accompanied himself on piano for his yearning take on the 1930 Hoagie Carmichael classic Georgia, made famous by Ray Charles’s 1960 recording.

Bella Giordano changed things up with a 21st-century number, playing ukulele as she sang Cee-Lo Green’s irresistibly resentful Forget You, the 2010 Grammy winner for Best New Song.

Jaiden Edelman, who seven years ago scored a regional YouTube hit, The Massachusetts Song, with his father Dana, paid tribute to the Empire State as he played piano and sang Billy Joel’s New York State of Mind.

The band Era of Good Feelings, featuring Skylar Hall on guitar, Tripp Hopkins on percussion and James Murray on bass, finished the show by performing together outside (with face coverings and at a prudent distance from each other) by a backyard shed where Mr. Murray’s amp was plugged in.

The trio first played Valerie, a 2006 British rock song made famous by Mark Ronson and the late Amy Winehouse, before welcoming guitarist Jack Holmes to the line-up for an original finale. Their song, Mango Chutney, joins the fun-loving tradition of dance instrumentals in which the title, shouted in unison, is the chorus.

Era of Good Feelings (the name, in history books, refers to American unity after the War of 1812) then blew off a little steam with some Monkees-like antics for the camera.

About 35 people joined the audience on Zoom, their faces appearing in squares quilted across the two screens. The program also streamed on YouTube. Avid listeners included music teachers Abigail Chandler and Nancy Rogers, choreographer Ken Romero and others who have worked with the senior performers in musicals and classes.

Theatre instructor Brooke Hardman beamed as she thanked the young musicians, first referring to the outline provided to her by the producers at the start of the show.

“All it says on the script is ‘Brooke says something mushy and sentimental about the seniors,’” she said.

“You’ve been faced with a lot of stuff this year,” Ms. Hardman Ditchfield continued. “You have been such an incredible bunch of leaders … I know this wasn’t how we envisioned it, but I’m glad we found a way to come together.”
