We seek to inspire
Our community musically through partnerships with different organizations in the DC metro area. Together we create accessible music programs and activities. Here are some of our educational programs this coming season:
MASTER CLASSTHE ART OF MUSIC
Nothing is more inspiring to a young musician than to perform and receive instruction from an acclaimed master. In our master class series, young people who study classical guitar in our area have the opportunity to play for visiting Marlow Series concert artists. Performers and audience members will leave these events with a broader understanding of and appreciation for the art of music, the art of guitar and, sometimes, the art of life.
Marlow Guitar for Veterans
Back in November 2019 the Marlow Guitar International started a pilot program called Marlow Guitars for Veterans in cooperation with the USO on the campus of the US Naval Hospital/Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda Md. This program is completely free to the Veterans, including a new Córdoba C5 nylon string guitar and case, sheet music, footstool, method book, extra D’Addario strings, electronic tuner and a one hour per week private lesson.
Shortly before the USO closed temporarily due to the COVID-19, MGI and USO agreed to convert lessons to virtual platforms and carry on with lessons.
In mid March, the Board of Directors of the Marlow Guitar International agreed to fund and expand this program.
PRE-CONCERT TALKSMARLOW SERIES CONCERT
Each Marlow Series concert is preceded by a lecture about the repertoire and history of the evening’s music. Come hear these interesting educators share context, insight and humor.
In addition to our main-stage concerts, we are proud to present Marlow Serenades, our house-concert series. Join a small gathering to enjoy an afternoon of beautiful music by our talented local performers and a glass of wine in a gracious home. If you would like to come to one of our house concerts, please subscribe to our mailing list for notification of upcoming events. Members will receive early announcements.
