Liverpool High School (NY) 1970s Music & Drama Memories
Welcome to this site for those of us who participated in music and drama
activities at LHS during the 1970s. We performed with concert bands, the
marching band, the orchestra, choirs, musicals and plays, and extra-curricular
activities (such as the Stage Band and Rock Ensemble). We were performers,
musicians, color guard members, crew members, teachers and parents, and now we
include our spouses and other valued friends.
* VITAL, the Liverpool Community Chorus and the Liverpool Music Department will be staging a
Jesus Christ Superstar reunion show on May 6 and 7, 2011, at 7:30 and the high school.

I can't adequately express how great a
time we had at the 2005 reunion. Watch this site for updates. Send Gary your
photo links. See below for budget info.
Back in 2001, I attended my 25th class reunion, and it was fun, but I didn't see the alumni I really wanted to see. And so the music/drama reunion of 2005 was born. I admit that after four years of being involved in the daily grind of contacting alumni and contracting vendors, I almost forgot why we were doing it. Almost. We share a common experience that goes beyond geography, and that experience unites us even now, and that unity became real for me again when we sang the Alma Mater at the banquet. I hope you all have your own goose-bump memories of reunion weekend 2005. - Gary Gocek, '76

2005 reunion budget
We paid a bit less than budgeted for the banquet because we squeezed in a couple people at the door, but then we held the deejay longer than planned, so we went over budget on that. The alumni directories ran a bit over budget, but Ramada didn't charge us for having a separate dining room for the Sunday brunch as expected. Postage was on target. Nametag stickers cost $41, yeesh. $50 was donated to VITAL. The bank and PayPal and Classmates accounts have been closed, the "Liverpool Music Reunion" business name has been de-registered, and Gary's "reunion" email address has been deleted. Gary will be happy to provide the goriest of details.
