Who is John E. Marlow?

John E. Marlow

John E. Marlow was a composer, performer and educator. A faculty member of the American University, John inspired and assisted generations of guitar lovers with his talent, commitment to excellence and personality. Few are the guitar professionals in Washington whose work was not touched by John. The Conservatory and Washington’s guitar community have chosen to commemorate this outstanding human being with an annual living memorial–The John E. Marlow Guitar Series.

The John E. Marlow Guitar Series is one of the three main projects of the International Conservatory of Music (ICM), which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, and was incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1980 and registered in the State of Maryland in 1995.
