Musical Arts International, Inc. (MAI) began in 1995 as a cultural outreach program in Montgomery County, Maryland. Its artistic mission is to encourage and inspire audiences of all ages to appreciate chamber music, to uncover the tremendous wealth and variety of music in its repertoire, and to advance cultural growth with artistic presentation featuring music of all styles.
In the past, well known artists and ensembles featuring classical compositions have been presented. In 1999, a Jazz night was included featuring such greats as Gershwin, Porter, Ellington, and etc., in order to reach a wide audience in the community. High school students are encouraged to volunteer in concerts to earn credit for community service. In 2000, a web site was initiated.
Our artists have been featured in Gazette Entertainment, the Montgomery Journal and Asian Fortune. Many have received favorable reviews from the Washington Post and other local newspapers.
Concert-goers enjoy the intimate settings chosen for the concerts and consider the programs entertaining and educational. With its cultural and educational mission, MAI hopes to continue to bring music of high artistic quality to the community and to use this as a vehicle to unite people in love, joy, and peace.
