Fiori Musicali work very hard to give you a great repertoire of beautiful baroque and classical music near you. I wanted to learn more about the players who regularly make up Fiori Musicali and what makes them tick.
On Thursday 30th May Fiori Musicali are performing their ‘Vivaldi’s Venice’ at Bilton Grange Chapel. Ahead of the performance I thought I’d have a chat with one of the main instrumentalists of the evening, Heidi Fardell. Heidi’s instrument will be quite familiar for many of us. It’s often the first experience that we have playing music. ‘London’s Burning’ might give you a clue.
When it comes to Fiori Musicali Penelope Rapson is the person in the know. Penelope is director (she keeps everyone in line) and founded the classical group in 1983 after studying music at Oxford. She’s a clever bunny and as I know pretty much nothing about classical music, we had a chat so I could swot up!
Just a quick note to let you know some good news. You can see Fiori for free! Priory Church Canons AshbyAs part of Fiori’s residency at Canons Ashby, their Choir sings traditional Sunday Evensong during the Summer months.
