We put on a really great show. Come and see us sometime!
Marchwood Prelude is a community orchestra that was formed in 2009 and has grown to include more than 60 amateur musicians of all ages.
The music played by Marchwood Prelude is specially arranged by John Bell to accommodate the wide and varied range of instruments played in Marchwood Prelude.
Marchwood Prelude has evolved from an off-shoot of Marchwood Orchestra. The Orchestra was formed over 30 years ago in St John’s Church in Marchwood, by a group of enthusiastic amateur musicians under the leadership of Reg Martin. Marchwood Prelude has become a confident self-contained organisation as part of the Marchwood Music Society.
The motto of Marchwood Prelude is “sharing the joy of music” and judging by the applause and smiles at Prelude concerts, this spirit is being effectively embraced by both audience and musicians!
Marchwood Sinfonia was formed in 2018 to allow members to perform light classical music. "We are a friendly chamber orchestra who take our music seriously, but ourselves never!"
Saxophonous is a group of muscians who enjoy playing saxophone music together and often use their musical talents to raise money for local charities.
All our rehearsals are open to the public and to potential new members, so why not pay us a visit.
Prelude rehearse every Thursday evening from 6:30pm until 7:45 pm and Sinfonia rehearse on Thursday evenings from 8:00 pm at Marchwood Village Hall, Vicarage Road, Marchwood, Southampton, SO40 4SX
