Marchwood Sinfonia in concert


WhAT is Marchwood Music Society?

Marchwood Music Society (MMS)  is the umbrella organisation for several other ensembles including:

Marchwood Prelude

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 

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 musicians  who enjoy playing saxophone music together and often use their musical talents to raise money for local charities.
