Music in Marlow
Music in Marlow is run on a voluntary basis by Martin and Jean Ashford, out of our love of music and our association with Christ Church URC, of which this is a project. Christ Church was built in 1840 and beautifully modernised in 2002-3.
We started our regular concert programme in 2012 and, by the end of 2019, had run 65 events.
What we do
We put on the kinds of music that we enjoy hearing! That includes instrumental recitals, chamber music, jazz, choral and occasionally other genres.
We bring professional musicians to the town but also provide a platform for young and amateur players. Suggestions welcome - and do get in touch if you would like to offer us a performance.
Proceeds from tickets may be used to pay the musicians, to cover the costs of publicity, and where shown to raise money for specified causes such as Christian Aid.
Any remaining profit is donated to the church, for the Music Fund or New Project Fund. We funded purchase of the church's 1901 Bechstein grand piano.
The sound of silence
You won't need to be told that the Covid-19 outbreak has had a serious impact on the world of music, with all concert venues forced to close their doors. We are in the same boat, our programme is suspended until further notice.
We strongly recommend registering for our occasional email updates so that we can keep you posted on future prospects.
Meanwhile, there's a lot of music online that you can listen to - contact us if you'd like some suggestions.
