Mr. Anthony Femino
This year's musical is: Elf jr.!
Welcome to chorus! I have been teaching at LAMS since 2009. I teach 5th grade general music (5-132, 5-138, 5-142, 5-151), 6th grade chorus and the 7th/8th grade choir. The choirs perform music from many time periods from the Renaissance to modern times as well as music from many cultures. We have sung in many languages from Zulu to Serbian, French to Japanese.
Students at LAMS perform in a number of events. We have three concerts at school: the Winter Concert, the Choral Pops Concert and the Spring Concert. Students may participate in the MEANYC All-County Chorus, NYSSMA, Queens Choral Festival to name a few.
Many of our graduates have gone on to performing arts high schools such as LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra, PPAS, Talent Unlimited and Special Music School, as well as the auditioned music program at Forest Hills HS. Please see the audition requirement sheet in the class handouts section.
In addition to teaching music I also am the director for the school musical. Look outside my door (124) for upcoming information regarding concerts, auditions, and other musical activities.
