Website: The Band of Long Island
The Band of Long Island was organized in the Fall of 1995 after more than two years of serious discussions among a group of Long Island’s leading wind players. They wanted to organize a band unlike the other groups, and believing that the best would attract the best, they invited only outstanding players to join. The players enlisted conductor Michael Flamhaft, whom they had known for many years. And so, the Band of Long Island was born. Members come from all walks of life – professional musicians, music teachers other music professionals, as well as avocational players who perform on a professional level. What they have in common is a love of band music and an ability to play at a high level. The Band of Long Island is a proud member of the Association of Community Bands and the Nassau Music Educaors Association.
As the Band has evolved, it has taken up the causes of many other groups, using its talent to help raise money for these charitable organizations. To date, the Band of Long Island raised more than $150,000 for charity with its concerts and performances.
