L’Altrella and Feroce, as well as Matt Bednarsky, are all Shelton High School graduates.

The performance took place Saturday, Dec. 20. Feroce opened the show with her own set.

Bednarsky often tries to play in the area in the summer and December holiday season when he returns home to visit with family.

He graduated from Shelton High in 2005, where he was active with the drama club, choir and a cappella music groups.

He then graduated from New York University in 2009 and lived in New York City for awhile.

To pursue his music career, Bednarsky moved to Nashville — known as Music City — in 2013 and has been busy writing songs and performing ever since.
