Long Island Masterworks
Founded in 1990, Long Island Masterworks is a nonprofit organization that presents concerts of choral music at the highest level with professional orchestral accompaniment. Led by our founding Music Director and Conductor, Frances C. Roberts, the LIM has commissioned and premiered two major choral works—one a benefit for breast cancer research, and the other a memorial to survivors and victims of the Holocaust. The LIM has performed at Carnegie Hall on five occasions under distinguished guest conductors, and was honored to be the guest chorus for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra performance of the Beethoven Ninth Symphony, under the direction of Edo de Waart. We draw our members from Nassau and Suffolk Counties, from the North Shore to the South Shore and everywhere in between. In the summer the LIM sponsors the Long Island Choral Festival & Institute that attracts participants from all across the country. Our festival is now permanently in residence at Adelphi University.
