1972-74, Julian Gocek, 8mm
Welcome to all 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. This site is maintained by alumnus
Gary Gocek ('76).
I collect recordings of LHS events from the 1970s and I have digitized
dozens of events. Keep scrolling for links to my collection and info on making requests.

Past Fine Arts reunions and events
On Friday, August 3, 2007, a few of us talked about everyone else behind their backs.
On Wednesday, August 23, 2006, about a dozen alumni attended a happy hour at
the Ramada Inn. General Manager and alumnus Tony Mangano provided food. We
talked about how we should hold more reunions, and maybe even an alumni cruise.
Friday, November 11, 2005 (Veterans Day),
8 pm - cocktails "on your own" at Tailgaters Tavern (Ramada Inn, Buckley Road).
Saturday, November 12, 2005,
10 am - walk along Onondaga Lake, 6 pm - banquet at Liverpool Country Club.
Sunday, November 13, 2005,
11 am - brunch at Ramada.
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.
