MEREDITH ELAINE BAKER
has been conductor of the
Long Island Choral Society since 1979, a position she
has held longer than any of her predecessors. A
keyboard specialist and choral conductor since before
her teens, music for the Church has been her passion.
Since High School, that area also included Oratorios.
Her secondary education also included years of violin,
flute and bassoon study, prompting her keen
understanding of instrumental technique and
psychology. Touring with the Long Island Youth
Orchestra during two summers before graduation also
planted the seeds of and love for world travel.

(6 March 2005, before her 3 pm Recital), United States
Military Academy at West Point, New York. "The largest
pipe organ in a worship space in the world."
The Long Island Choral Society is an educational as
well as performance-minded group. We hope that the
footprint we leave on Long Island's cultural scene will
remain vibrant for years to come!
