Golden moment for AHS show choir

Andover High School’s From Start to Finish Show Choir has plenty to sing about this week after capturing its first-ever gold medal.

Led by student band leader Carter Lesky, the competitive choir topped the field this past Saturday at a competition in Somerset.

The gold-medal win was especially gratifying for the seniors in the chorus, who have been at its heart since Mark Mercer launched the group four years ago.

From Start to Finish will next perform for a hometown crowd when it hosts the New England Show Choir Showdown on Saturday, March 22, at the Collins Center for the Performing Arts at Andover High School on Shawsheen Road.

It will be the first time Andover has hosted a competition. Nineteen show choirs will perform at the day-long event. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for seniors and children. For more information or reservations, visit or call 978-623-8616.
