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, to encourage and premiere new works and to advance cultural growth with artistic presentation featuring music of all styles.
In the past, well known artists and ensembles featuring classical chamber works, past and nowadays, have been presented, and new works have been premiered. 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.

Concert-goers enjoy the intimate chamber music settings at an affordable price and consider the programs entertaining and educational. The newly established Question/Answer time, and warm reception to meet the artists after the concert have been an amazing expereicne for all who attended. 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.
