In addition to the concerts we run ourselves, we have three organisations that routinely hire our building for their rehearsals and some concerts. We love having them at Christ Church!

The Harmony Belles are an all-female group, formerly known as the Songbirds, who just love singing and perform a couple of times a year for various good causes. They also bring a touch of glamour to Marlow's musical scene!

 

Marlow Music Makers are a mixed-voice choir, mainly of a "certain age" but with a big local following. If you're interested in having a sociable sing, why not pop along to Christ Church one Tuesday evening (rehearsals resuming late Jan 2022)? 

 

The Marlow Orchestra (pictured in action) is also very much a community affair and really seem to enjoy themselves! Again, new players are welcome so email them if you'd like to know more, or try dropping by Christ Church on most Thursday evenings.

Next concerts by other organisations


Not a lot to show you at the moment - Covid 19 stopped a lot of organisations in their tracks and music making has suffered.  But we'll update you when we have more information about things you might like.

And still more, in and near Marlow:


Marlow Community Choir at Borlase is directed by Gillian Dibden MBE. They perform "grown up" repertoire like Haydn, Britten, Rutter, Mozart, Fauré...


Marlow Jazz Club have been putting on live jazz in Marlow for well over 30 years. Michael Eagleton brings some fantastic musicians to our town.


Another local jazz venue is in Hedsor, where Geoff Cronin presents live jazz most Thursdays.


All Saints is the parish church in Marlow and also runs excellent concerts. As their space is bigger than ours, it suits larger orchestras and bands.


Lea Barn near Marlow is the venue for a delightful series of Sunday afternoon concerts, with excellent tea and cakes afterwards! All free, collection for charity.

West Wycombe Chamber Music Festival is the brainchild of Lawrence Power and is surely the very best local event when it comes to serious music. Sadly, it only lasts for one weekend in September!


Wycombe Arts Festival organises an annual programme of music and other arts, in which we normally feature one of our concerts


Martin and Jean, who run this site, themselves play regularly or sometimes in:

Bisham Concert Band

Burnham Concert Band

Wycombe Sinfonia

Chiltern Camerata


That's only the tip of the local iceberg, there is a lot of good music locally. There's also a choice of local listing sites that promote concerts but we're happy to recommend My Marlow. Whatever your preferred style, keep music live!
