The mission of the Long Island Philharmonic is to provide high quality musical programming that entertains, excites and inspires the Long Island community, creating community pride and improving quality of life. Our purpose includes introducing and educating children to understand, appreciate and enjoy orchestral music as well as providing stimulation and adult musical education. The Long Island Philharmonic was founded in 1979 by folk singer Harry Chapin in collaboration with Maestro Christopher Keene and several area business leaders. Since then, the orchestra has provided cultural and educational benefits of the highest level to the residents of Long Island and the surrounding boroughs. Considered young by American orchestra standards, the Philharmonic, led by its four music directors, has made significant strides in expanding its programs and offering a musical product of the highest caliber. In recognition of its artistic achievements, the State of New York has designated the Long Island Philharmonic a “Primary Arts Organization.” With an annual budget of over $2 million, the orchestra is among the most respected and widely-supported regional orchestras in the nation - and the only professional symphony orchestra and chorus based on Long Island.
