How the John E. Marlow Guitar Series Began
At the unexpected passing of John Marlow in 1992, his friends organized a concert as a tribute to John and a college tuition fundraiser for his son Richard. The event was a huge success, and the magic felt by all in attendance on that beautiful Sunday afternoon of April 18, 1993 inspired Tim Healy and Regis Ferruzza to create a concert series in Johnís name.

John was a performer, composer, arranger and educator, teaching and serving as Head of the Guitar Department at American University. He inspired and assisted generations of guitarists with his talent, commitment to excellence and generous personality. John was an outstanding human being and our friend. We commemorate him with this annual living memorial.

The International Conservatory of Music (ICM), a 501(c)(3) organization, is the umbrella organization for The John E. Marlow Guitar Series. It was incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1980 and then in Maryland in 2015. Our mission is to create community through music, by drawing people together for entertainment, education, and inspiration.
