The Nucleus of the MMA is its choir which has not only performed all over India but also in several International Church music festivals including Coventry in 1998 and 2000 and Chester in 2006 in the UK.
The Madras Musical Association is the longest surviving Western Music Organisation east of the Suez, committed to project, perform and propagate western music in this part of the world. So even though the choir is the main arm of the association, it also indulged in presenting a wide array of music ranging from Classical, Gospel, Jazz, Country and Western, World music, Pop, Comic Operas and Musicals.
“Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.”
Johann Sebastian Bach
The Madras Musical Association participated in the Asia Pacific Choir Games held in Colombo.
In June 2009, the choir was invited to perform in the International Church music festival in Rome with a mass choir.
Carols by Candlelight has become a much loved and highly anticipated Christmas tradition.
