Lukas Retires As Roy Reuther Choral Director

Lukas Retires As Roy Reuther Choral Director


Peter Lukas has retired as choral director at Roy Reuther Senior Center. Starting at Hartman Y, and then joining Rockaway Park Senior Center, Peter has been leading seniors in song at JASA Roy Reuther Senior Center for the last 15 years. He has brought beautiful music and personal gratification to hundreds of senior center members throughout the Rockaway Peninsula. A holocaust survivor who hid Jews during the war and lost his family to the Nazis, Peter came to the United States and became a successful restauranteur. But music was always his first love having written countless published songs and melodies. Mr. Lukas was given a beautiful farewell luncheon on September 12th at Roy Reuther. St Gertrude’s Choir serenaded him. Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer sent a Citation from The New York State Assembly. It was a glorious day and one that Peter and all his friends will not soon forget. Lukas is shown shaking hands is with Hugo Delgado.
