Long Island Lutenist


Early Music Long Island, or Emily, is a two-headed ensemble based in Nassau County that specializes in the outreach and performance of Early Music on the geographic Long Island area.


The EMLI orchestra is community driven ensemble with rotating members, and local students. The instruments are healthy mixture of old and new, but the music is always from the Renaissance/Baroque eras and embraces the traditions of the time. Music is arranged from tablature, scores, and figured bass into a modern tangible lead sheet for any player.
The play-ins are a chance for new members and interested parties to play along with, and get to know other early music enthusiasts in the area. All instruments/arts are welcome. If you are interested in coming to a play in, please help yourself to some of the music provided on the ‘Score’ page. You can also drop a line to EarlyMusicLongIsland415@gmail.com


Some core members of Emily do regular performances around Long Island (Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, Brooklyn) in a variety of venues. This group is comprised of the EMLI orchestra section leaders, Continuo, Viola da Gamba, Voice, Violin, in any combination or featuring guest artists.
