All the students
that perform in these special groups go through an audition process back at the start of school and practice
after school all throughout the school year. During the Spring Concert Series at the middle school they
are featured both nights. The Woodwind Choir brought their famous chamber music to share. The
Swing Choir was excellent as always, blending their voices to the piano and also performing one piece
a cappella. The Jazz Band had everyone’s feet tapping and hands clapping along to the music as they
performed. The bands and chorus are under the direction of Rob Scagnelli, Mike Seckla and Sara Heron.
Thank you to all the students for sharing their talents with the community who was otherwise unable to
attend your concerts.

Among the graduating students in the Class of 2017 is a
local hero, Lawrence Torre. Torre , who has served 12 years
in the military while working full time for the Army National
Guard has been attending Granite State College to get his
teaching degree.
Staff Sergeant Lawrence Torre is a veteran, serving three
tours overseas, 2004-2005 in Iraq, 2007-2008 in Iraq and most
recently 2009-2010 in Afghanistan.
He is a husband and proud father of three. While also with HLN
committing to his school and full-time job, Lawrence finds
the time to coach multiple sporting teams in the town, most
notably the Hudson-Litchfield Bears where he has been
a coach for the last three years. Even with these types of
commitments he even finds time to participate in an adult
soccer team as well.
Lawrence just graduated with high honors with his
associate’s degree and has now set his eyes on a bachelor’s
degree to further his education at Granite State College.
