We hope everyone is continuing to remain healthy and safe. We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and the recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health and Governor DeWine. We really miss making music and sharing it with the community. Hopefully, our three large ensembles, the Lake Effect Concert Band, Polar Vortex, and Blizzard Youth Winds, will be resuming again soon.

Be sure to watch our living room concert videos, put together by members of our Lake Effect Concert Band. We’ll post more to our Facebook page soon. Hopefully we can get our Blizzard Youth Winds to do one too.

We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available. Stay healthy everyone!


Welcome to the Snowbelt Musical Arts Association, a nonprofit organization created to bring more music to the Snowbelt region of Northeast Ohio. We provide opportunities for people of all ages to participate in musical activities, both as performers and audiences.

We passionately believe that music is a lifelong learning activity and operate musical ensembles to allow area musicians to expand and develop their skills, express themselves, and share their love of music with the community. Read more about our mission, vision, core values and goals.
