8th March

Steve Marshall
is a mathematics graduate and worked as a Chartered Accountant for 25 years. His musical background is as a jazz saxophonist. He then studied music theory and composition and took early retirement in 2001 to write music full-time. Both he and his wife Ann have been composing prolifically for the recorder for a number of years now and the programme will undoubtedly include some of their compositions or arrangements as well as more traditional music. Steve will be bringing his own composition(s) for string quartet and recorders. We have arranged for a string quartet to be present, so it should be a very interesting and enjoyable day!
