Being in the senior chorus at M&A was the most transcendent experience of my life. Verdi’s requiem.

How awesome!

I adored singing with LaGuardia’s gospel chorus‼️What a fantastic school and a true gift‼️🎶🎤🤩

What a great opportunity for those students! I loved Senior Chorus when I was at M&A all those years ago. Have enjoyed very much working with Eric Whitacre also on VC6 and soon to collaborate with Choir of the Earth summer school.

Gorgeous sound!

Check out the art opening "Familiar" featuring the art of Yoichiro Yoda (LaG '90) June 4 at Court Tree Collective in Brooklyn, Industry City, 51 35th Street, BLD #5, 2nd FL, Suite B236. The exhibit runs June 4-10.
courttree.com/Familiar
"Court Tree Collective proudly presents Familiar, a group exhibition featuring work of two families of artists: the Rush and the Yoda families. The Rush family’s artistic story spans three generations: grandmother, son, and grandson. The Yoda family are Japanese immigrants that have artistic roots dating back to 1921. Familiar is a true a story about two families of artists.
To be familiar, is to be known. The bond of family lives and expands beyond earthly matters. Mirroring one another—the Rush family, and the Yoda family are rooted by their innate artistic abilities. Passed along from generation to generation, their diverse ancestral backgrounds and upbringings create a prolific conversation. The versatile masterings of material and technique run deep within these paralleled families."

Ohhhhh nooooo! She was my Art History Teacher! She was the BEST! My condolences 💐 prayers and love 💕 go out to her family and the entire M&A4LIFE family as well. RIP 🙏🏽

I had very fond memories of Ms. Stember - I took a Fashion class with her and other art classes. She was very sweet and warm. I will miss her dearly. May she rest in peace and my deepest condolences to her family.

Ms. Stember ❤️

A person of great dignity and devotion.

RIP 😢

Was she a teacher in 1967? I don’t remember her name

RIP

I remember Ms. Stember, she was so sweet and patient. She will be missed. May she rest in peace. 🙏

May she Rest In Peace! ❤️🙏

So sorry to hear this. She taught me art history, and I was her morning office volunteer, and later art gallery curator. May she rest in peace.

😭 😭

Oh wow may she Rest In Peace.

❤️ one of my favorite teachers. RIP

💜💜💜

May she rest in peace

I remember her, sweet lady. SIP 🙏

Sweetest ever RIP Ms. Stember

She wrote my college recommendation. I was reminded that she used my portfolio as an example for future graduating students. May her memory be a blessing.

Was a music major but have sweet memories of her. RIP🙏🏻

Will miss her so much. RIP 🙏🏼

Ms. Stember!! I remember her well. May she rest ❤️🙏🏽

O wow! May she Rest In Peace!

Once she showed me my entrence exam artwork that was kept in a file cabinet. We talked about the whole exam experience. She was very nice. May she rest in peace.

Another wonderful colleague gone.

Absolutely loved her. One of the teachers I look back on fondly who taught me that academics wasn't the be-all end-all of life, and what I really needed to hear then. She will be missed.
