MAA is a non-profit organisation founded and incorporated as a charitable entity in 2003. Our members are ethnic Chinese from China , Hong Kong, and Taiwan plus a number of Pakeha, Koreans & Indians. We aim to use music as a bridge to enhance communication amongst members, to take part in music activities, to reinforce, support and heighten opportunities of music participation in our communities. We also provide a platform, through music, for new migrants to integrate with people of the mainstream community. The Association is devoted to developing diversity of different cultures in New Zealand .
