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.
