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.
Our concerts have been featured in Gazette Entertainment, CultureSpotMC.com, Asian Fortune, World Journal, Washington Chinese Daily News and others. We have received favorable reviews from the Washington Post, World Journal and other local newspapers.
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.

West Shore Piano Trio
Heather Haughn, violin, Diana Flesner, cello,
Jay DeWire, piano
Praised for their “fluid” and “sultry” playing, the West Shore Piano Trio brings new life to the monuments of the chamber music literature, Since their first performance on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in 2008, the West Shore Piano Trio has brought passion, color, and penetrating insight to the works they perform, not only through their playing but also through their commentary and interaction with audiences.
The WSPT believes that education and live performance enhance each other, and that the better informed an audience is about a work, the more deeply they will appreciate its performance. They use brief verbal commentary, biographical details , framing the work in the context of its time, highlighting thematic and compositional elements of the piece, as well as connections shared between each work on the program.
Program: Their Roots are Showing. Arthur Foote was a Wagnerian whose Piano Trio No. 2 has an unmistakable American twang; Paul Schoenfield uses an entire century's worth of American popular music in his Cafe Music and Bedrich Smetana struggles to create a Czech national music out of sheer will in his Piano Trio in G Minor.
