Marlow Music Festival is a popular and well-established community event on the Marlow calendar. It was set up as a charity nearly 20 years ago with the goal to encourage young (and not so young) musicians to develop their talent by providing a forum for them to perform in front of a small audience and an adjudicator and gain professional feedback on the performance.
Hundreds of local children and adults take part each year and the performances are attended by relatives, friends, and music-loving Marlovians.
This year’s Festival will be held between the 2nd and 15th of November in All Saints Church, Marlow (vocal and choir classes) and The Shelley Theatre, Court Garden, Marlow (all other classes and the final concert with the presentation of awards).
The Festival is organised by volunteers who donate their time and expertise to ensure that it runs successfully and within budget. The considerable running costs, particularly for hiring the venues and a high-quality piano for performers and accompanists and for paying professional adjudicators are met by entry fees and thanks to the generosity of local businesses.
Festival Concert and Presentation of Awards: Friday 15th November 2013 at Shelley Theatre 7pm
Tickets on sale from the Marlow Information Centre or on the night. Full details: www.marlowmusicfestival.co.uk.
