Orchestra Long Island

Orchestra Long Island, established in 2017, carries forward the musical legacy of the Long Island Philharmonic. Profoundly motivated by the belief that the communities of Long Island deserve to have a professional orchestra and aware of the void created by the orchestra’s closure in 2016, David Stewart Wiley, who had been the Philharmonic’s music director and a leader in music performance and music education on Long Island for nearly two decades, led a group of dedicated musicians and passionate educators to form Orchestra Long Island. The scale and scope of performance and educational initiatives—both those currently in progress as well as those envisioned for the future—place OLI on the fast track to becoming a nationally recognized community innovator among regional orchestras.
