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.”

– Warren Hamerman

And now for some pictures from our first Marlow Serenade, featuring Chris Moy, provided by Amy Crews Cutts (host, member of the Board of Directors, and Executive Director of the Beatty Music Competition).

Amy’s words, as posted on Facebook:

“The first Marlow Serenade performance was beautiful and fun and 🎶! So wonderful to see Chris Moy again. He won the 2007 Senior division and came back in 2008 to win the Beatty Competition Grand Prize. He is now a professional as well as a graduate student furthering his studies in Basel, Switzerland. Thank you to all who attended this event and those that have supported Marlow Guitar International (International Conservatory of Music) and the Beatty Competition!”
