“All the World’s a Stage”

Updated: Apr 28

True enough.

But right now, all the worlds’ stages are dark. Many performing arts venues were driven to the internet where they have offered a dizzying range of events: plays, recitals, classical music concerts, jazz, rock, and pop performances. Individual performers began mastering broadcasts from their homes. Who would have thought that National Public Radio’s (NPR) Tiny Desk Concert Series, which predates the pandemic, would have foreshadowed the live music experience of millions today?

Amid this online activity, few if any “broadcasts” have offered a regional focus: enter Long Island Stage. Here we will present Long Island musicians in their varied configurations: solo performers, trios, and bands across a range of musical styles. We want to present the vitality of Long Island’s musicians by giving them a stage for live performances and capturing these in-the-moment events for posting later in an easily accessible archive on our site longislandstage.com and Facebook page.


So, stay tuned as we set the stage for our showcase series premiering on April 22. You are guaranteed a front-row seat.
