Maybe I can audition for "Doc" ! ...."Mind ? I have no mind; I'm the village idiot.."

I saw the original on broadway . Standing room only was afforded us( attending M&A , being an art student , theaters allowed us to attend for free) it was wonderful !

Do you have to be 25 on paper or do you just have to look 25? 😂😭😂😭

Crap! They aren’t looking for anybody’s!

They’ve cast him apparently

i went to music and art

My fave musical!

Daniel Schwartzman (M&A '72) shared this lovely song/video and says, "This song that I wrote is dedicated to the High School of Music and Art in NYC which I attended, 1969-1972. My dear fellow graduates will understand all the references, including the Brahms in the opening."

The Castle

Once upon a time
Upon a hill a castle stood,
And within that gothic place
Did beauty thrive with joy and grace
With all things that were good.

And though the years have swiftly passed
The castles spell will always last
For us blessed few who carry still
The fires that set our souls ablaze
Within the castle on the hill.

(words and music by Dan Schwartzman M&A '72)

Lovely! Thank you, Daniel! (I was M & A '66)

Beautiful... and I loved the 'school song' woven into it... Yes, we'll all love those memories we share from the "Castle On the Hill"...

Beautiful! From an M and A art grad!

That’s lovely! Chokes me up thinking of our castle. Should be on Broadway Thank you!

Thank you Dan. “Now upward in wonder our distant glance is turning” if I remember correctly were the opening lyrics to the Brahms song. Your song is beautiful. We have a Class Of ‘74 Messenger Group and keep in communication.

Great! M&A grad in art,but love the song!

Thank you for brightening my day. Class of '63.

Great! Class of '65 😊

It never ceases to amaze me the incredible impact LaGuardia alums have had on the culture on this planet. Mr. Bochco is a perfect example. Proud to have walked the same halls at M&A that he did. Music and Art Proud Class of 1975.🎼🎨

He went on to graduate from Carnegie Tech (Carnegie Mellon), my alma mater. He was very loyal to his school and to fellow alumni.

Sorry to hear. He was a real credit to Music and Art.

RIP. I was class of '65.

We were in chorus together. RIP💕 Joan ‘61

Rest is peace ✨

They just completed their silent sit-in in solidarity with the lives lost at the Parkland school shooting last month. Leave your questions for them in the comments and we'll ask some.

Proud alum! Pubic arts funding is so important in our schools. Amazing shout out!

This is why we have to keep the focus on the arts in LaGuardia!

Proud of him and the school. I will donate again when the wretched principal has been replaced and the school once again sticks to its original mission.

That's my school - what an opportunity, still going strong.

Incredibly awesome journey for fellow LaGuardia alumni! Proud moment for all! Congrats & continued success Timothee🎉👍

A great video featuring Music & Art 1940 alum Gloria Stoll Karn. Gloria Stoll Karn is recognized for her contributions to the pulp fiction industry during the 1940s, one of very few female illustrators working in the field to create illustrations and covers for popular romance and dime store magazines. Her exhibit at the Normal Rockwell Museum Feb. 10-June 10, 2018 explores the artist’s short but prolific career, and her unexpected journey in a world previously assigned to male artists. www.nrm.org/2017/12/gloria-stoll-karn-pulp-romance/

Watch a beautiful tribute to M&A '61 alum, June LeBell. June was a professional concert soprano who became one of the first women to be hired as a staff announcer and interviewer in the male-dominated realm of commercial classical music radio broadcasting. She wrote and hosted programs on WQXR in New York for nearly three decades beginning in 1973.
