My NYC High School of Performing Arts Reunion!

Saturday, June 6th Performing Arts High (FAME I’m gonna live forever!) Reunion!

A first for me that was worth a crowded subway ride to the heart of Times Square plus a zesty walk through throngs of tourists.

While I missed class photo shoots, I managed a pose with conductor, Gerard Schwarz before I sauntered over to Buca di Beppo for cuisine and kinship with alums I hadn’t seen for decades! Many were Music Department buddies and orchestra members. Others were well-established actors and dancers.

Luckily, I packed my camcorder to capture a few celebratory frames!

Without a doubt, Shirley Katz, PA Math teacher, and Bella Malinka, Dance Dept. faculty member stole the show with their big, engaging smiles!

It was a joyous evening packed with fond memories!
