Classical Guitarist, Meng Su, China

For the second performance of the 2017-2018 Season:

We invite you to hear classical guitarist, Meng Su (China), perform at the Westmoreland Congregational Church in Bethesda, MD. (1 Westmoreland Circle, Bethesda, MD 20816)

Meng Su has performed throughout Europe, Asia and United States giving solo, duo, trio, and quartet concerts, and playing with such orchestras as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Knights Chamber Orchestra.

Meng gave her Carnegie Hall debut with Yameng Wang, her duo partner in the Beijing Guitar Duo in 2010, which launched the duo’s international
concert career. This season will take them to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Poland and China.

Meng’s debut duo CD Maracaípe, received a Latin-GRAMMY nomination for the titled piece, which was dedicated to the Beijing Guitar Duo by renowned guitarist/composer Sergio Assad. In July 2016, Meng released her first solo album Meng.

Born in Qingdao, China, Meng began studying the guitar at the age of 5. She showed her talents from an early age and won first prize in numerous international competitions, including the Vienna Youth Guitar Competition, the Tokyo International Guitar Competition, the Iserlohn International Guitar Competition in Germany, and the Parkening International Guitar Competition.

In 2006, Meng came to the US to study with the world-renowned guitarist Manuel Barrueco, and earned her Master’s degree and Graduate Performance Diplomas at Peabody Conservatory.

A slight name change…

Dear friends,

You may have heard this already through email or on Facebook or Twitter, but we just wanted to share our decision, again, to let you know we have changed what we call the name of the umbrella organization, the International Conservatory of Music, to:

Marlow Guitar International

The organization has grown a bit and plans to grow a little further, although our mission remains the same as before: Creating Community Through Music : Drawing people together for entertainment, education, and inspiration.

Our logos:

Marlow Guitar International for print
Marlow Guitar International for            social media

All of our individual programs remain the same.

What will happen to the International Conservatory of Music name? Since it does have a history all of its own, Tim Healy will retain the name and may revive it for a project of his own.
