The Hudson High School Choral Department presented its spring concert May 27.

The event filled the auditorium -- 10 choral groups moved seamlessly on and off the stages performing 24 numbers. Students presented both conductors, Kari Heisler and Andy Haase, with mementos of thanks for their guidance throughout the year.

It was also the final concert for 48 graduating seniors. Honored as choir members of the year were Nicole Lewandowski, Bel Canto; Zach Helmen, Concert Choir; Allison Hawthorne, Chanteuse; and Stephen Dahle, Chamber. Also, Monica DeLoy and Joey Hanson were awarded the National School Choral Award.

The 2009-10 choral season will begin with the Fall Festival of Choirs concert on Oct. 26.
