---- — Andover High School’s All Girls Show Choir Nothin’ But Treble placed 11th in the Show Choir National Finals over the weekend in Chicago

Choral Director Mark Mercer said the AHS vocalists had an amazing weekend in Chicago, where they competed against 27 high schools nationwide in the single-gender category.

“The students were able to see some amazing show choirs from all over the country and perform in the amazing Arie Crown Theater. The theater seats about 4,800 people,” Mercer wrote in an email.

It was the final competition of the season for Nothin’ But Treble.

“I am already working on next year’s show choir competition shows and they are looking very promising as we begin to step to the next level. This year in all, both of our show choirs ranked nationally, brought home seven silvers, one bronze and seven judges awards,” Mercer wrote.
