Student-Faculty Chorus Honors Headmaster Torino

Our student-faculty chorus honored Headmaster Torino today with the inaugural performance of "Ox Cart Man", a piece composed by Mr. Desh Hindle, Director of Music. The piece is based on the poem by Donald Hall, which tells the cyclical story of an 18th-century farmer's life and how he must begin anew each year. Mr. Torino used this poem during his first convocation last fall, comparing the story of the farmer to the way teachers prepare each year for a new group of students. (This is the first choral piece Mr. Hindle has composed and he did it in just six days!) Congratulations to Mr. Torino on a great first year at Cushing and to Mr. Hindle and the chorus for an amazing performance!
