About us

Who we are

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.

YYour support

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.

Next events

A great evening of foot-tapping songs and tunes beckons! Hoagy Carmichael was a one-man hit factory, so book now for this feast of his music.
