“The Long Island Composers Alliance is one of the oldest and most active composer collectives in the United States. Since 1972, it has been a respected and active force for enriching the creative landscape of Long Island.”

Welcome to The Long Island Composers Alliance, representing the community of composers of the Long Island area and presenting their work to a diverse audience.


It is with deep regret that LICA announces the passing of founding member Marga Richter, who passed away peacefully at age 93 on June 25, 2020.

“Her story is one of breaking glass ceilings, paving a new path, and creating truly great music,” according to Parma Records, which published this beautiful tribute to Marga on July 6.


LICA’s 2019-2020 Concert Calendar is online here.
