Long Island Chamber Music Festival is comprised of young musicians of the highest caliber. Drawn from Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Astral Artists, and several other of the country’s most prestigious musical institutions, the musicians of Long Island Chamber Music Festival are united around a common mission. We work to present interactive performances of the highest quality, bringing engaging new music and approachable, informative programming to diverse audiences on Long Island. Our vision is to help make Long Island a hub for quality chamber music and the creation of new music. We strive to bring classical music to many people in many settings across Long Island, providing enriching musical experiences that can help build an engaged community around chamber music.

In 2019, we presented two pilot concerts on Long Island — the first at Planting Fields Arboretum, and the second at the Vanderbilt Museum. Both conceived as celebrations of summer, bringing five of New York’s finest young musicians together to perform music inspired by dance. This program’s party atmosphere paired Mozart’s charming Divertimento in D Major with a collection of dances arranged by the Danish String Quartet. The New York premiere of composer Nick DiBerardino’s Between the Reels, inspired by reel tunes from Dublin’s many pubs, brings a raucous energy that is rounded out by the final piece of the evening: a tango and dance suite for French Horn and String Quartet by Corrado Maria Saglietti.

We are excited for the future of our young festival, and we would love to hear from you! Please feel free to send us your thoughts at lichambermusic@gmail.com, or subscribe to our newsletter below.
