A comment on our last Marlow Serenade

Candice Mowbray
Candice Mowbray

“Bravo to the Marlow Guitar Series for organizing an intimate late Sunday afternoon house concert by the talented guitarist Candice Mowbray in an “up close and personal” home setting. Candice Mowbray plays in a sensitive cantabile style and she presented a thoughtfully crafted program of mostly late 20th century and contemporary lyrical guitar pieces offset by a legendary composition by Fernando Sor, Beethoven’s contemporary and acquaintance.  The classical guitar is beautifully suited for an intimate home concert setting where you can enjoy every nuance of the melodic phrase and the supporting choral voices in a “living room musical conversation.” It was an enriching, moving and enchanting experience and I urge others not to miss any future opportunities that Marlow may offer.”

Can we rename this weekend February Classical Guitar Immersion weekend?

For classical guitar students and musical aficionados of any age, this weekend is reaching immersion-style proportions, would you agree? Also a great environment for those planning on competing in the Beatty Music Scholarship Competition in March, eh?

The International Conservatory of Music: John E Marlow Guitar Series (represented by Directors & some Board Members) visited the Montgomery County Executive’s Ball this evening (Sunday, December 4, 2016) to celebrate the arts and, more specifically, to talk up our classical guitar programs in this area. 

(Also, see the last two pictures, the organizers were raffling off some door prizes – does their Raffle whirligig look familiar to anyone?)
