The Long Island High School for the Arts is located in Syosset, NY. The LIHSA campus sits on four acres of land and features 40,000 square feet of space in three state-of-the-art facilities. LIHSA is a collaborative environment where students can create and hone their craft in Visual Arts, Music, Film Making, and Musical Theatre.
The Roasalind Joel Conservatory for Music and Theatre houses the Seymour Weiner Theatre. The theatre is a 350-seat venue that hosts two black box theatres, a digital recording studio, music classrooms and rehearsal rooms, teaching spaces, and a workshop area dedicated to scenery, properties and costume creation. The other two buildings on campus feature multi-media and dance/fine arts studios.
The digital studio media lab is a fully equipped music production facility that has Mac workstations with music theory, production and ear training software. It has the capabilities to record a string quartet, mix a film soundtrack, or engineer a recording for someone in a comfortable environment.
