As a member of the first graduating class of LaGuardia H.S. In 1970 I wish all the new graduates a lifelong love and support of the arts!

Hi class of 2023! With graduation nearing, it is time for you to put your information in our Alumni & Friends data base!
A&F is the best way to keep in contact with your class and every class that came before you. We will plan reunions and will keep you updated on the success of other LaG alumni. No matter what industry you want to go into, there is no community as successful and talented as the LaGuardia community, so we hope you will stay in touch as each of you achieve great success.
Please fill out your contact information at alumniandfriends.org/seniors. The link is also in our Instagram bio. ... See MoreSee Less
So...you WILL be planning reunions? Tell me more!
Tanya Giles fyi. Seems to contradict what happened this year. Perhaps when Zoe's successor is found they will once again actually plan reunions instead of outsourcing to the individual classes.

What air quality ?? Air quality is fine !
Any chance of Admin changing this call since the air quality is better?
This has been done with an abundance of caution. I’m certain this was not an easy decision either. I currently live in Fire county in California. Decisions like these are wise.

Why was this not posted previously? The price went up yesterday and this is the first notice to this group? Sigh...
It's not even on the website!

Sorry leadership has devolved at LaGuardia
I bought a ticket anyway. Sounds like a fun evening!

The Art Department found a treasure trove of artwork from past LaGuardia students. They passed much of this art to us in hopes that we could track down the alums who created it. Here is a picture of Rithy Chan from the LaG Class of 1989, who came to pick up his piece today!

I’ve been wanting my painting back from the art Regents -class of 88
Oh wow, I was there at that time!! ❤️
My son did a poster of West Side Story that was displayed in the great hall opposite the statue of Toscanini . Do you have this poster? His name is Lawrence Hellman, class of 2005
Great job, Rithy!
Nora Levine Rithy!!! I remember sweet, incredibly talented Rithy!
Wonder if the Art Dept brought students’ work that was held in The Castle on the Hill to the new LGHS building? In my senior year (Fall ‘65 - Spring ‘66) my art teacher chose/kept my oil painting still life. Never saw it again. It was a still life of a glass seltzer bottle and other items.
hi! I was contacted in 2021 by a Leigh Woods to let me know a photo print was found and asked if I wanted it. I repsonded yes and then never heard from them again. Could someone please help me out with this? email@example.com
Rithy!! If you see this, friend me!!!
Hopefully some of my artwork from Bing's class is still around somewhere. Class of 77
I’m an 88 alum. Not sure anyone has my email though. firstname.lastname@example.org
Lol I would love to have my mural by the little flower theater by the escalator. Or a picture of it! Class of 2014
I googled my name one day and found a piece of my art that I painted at LaGuardia in 86 or 87 for sale on EBay. I moved after my sophomore year, so I probably left it in the moving frenzie. Who knows how it wound up for sale?! My husband bought it for me for Valentine’s Day. It’s now in the attic because it frightens him. But, if you run across any more pieces by Nicole Gahl, I’ll come and get them. 😂

Enjoy a trip down memory lane! Here is the old Music & Art school song, “Now Upward in Wonder,” set to Brahms 1st Symphony, 4th movement, 2nd theme.
NOW UPWARD IN WONDER
Now upward in wonder

Where brightly through ages
the immortal light is burning
Our task unending
that realm above
‘Till dull and lifeless things have caught
a beauty that daring dreams have wrought ... See MoreSee Less
Don’t they still sing it? We were told that whenever we heard The Brahms 1st Symphony,we would always think of M&A
New song to replace the old one? I always loved that song. So different from other school songs. As is/was the school! We
I work very hard not to sing the words when I happen to hear that movement.
Just heard Brahms 1st recently and started singing our song. Amazed myself that I still remembered the words. After all I graduated in '63. Anyone live in South Florida? It would be interesting if we could put a group together down here.
I played this for my audition to get into music and art on the viola!
There are some small differences between the lyrics shown above by the A&F and those in the illustration. With one exception, the illustration is correct. The exception is the final word, which is "wrought", not "brought". I have previously posted here the tale of attending a Peter Yarrow concert and chatting with him in the lobby as he signed books during intermission. When I said we were fellow M&A alums, he asked if I remembered the school song (testing me perhaps?). I said I did and he said, “Good, let’s sing it now.” Which we did, with nary a musical or poetic error, receiving laughter and applause from the milling crowd. A fun memory.
I guess if you really want to remember anything, learn it to music! I certainly remember this. People with dementia can often sing along to Christmas carols, for example. We had a beautiful school song.
