The Mississippi Alumni All-Star Band, also known as the "MAAB" and MMI's flagship program, is a unique performing ensemble. MAAB was created in the summer of 2011 and it brings the best of Mississippi’s young musicians together to perform during the summer months. MAAB has been invited to perform all over the United States, and plans to accept invitations abroad! The band has adopted the mantra, "The People's Band", because if you have the desire to join and play with fellow musicians, then we want you! We accept everyone that shares our love for music and performance because we truly believe that music is the universal language!
