There’s another excuse to enjoy a relaxed lunchtime recital at The Castle Wellingborough on Friday 9 May! This is the next one in Fiori’s popular series of ‘meet the artist’ recitals, when director Penelope Rapson introduces baroque violinist Amanda Babington (who you may have seen performing at The Castle in March).
Fiori Musicali have a residency at Canons Ashby which saw them perform at the National Trust several times last week. Every performance there is special but it was even more so this week as it was to celebrate the opening of the newly restored baroque gardens and to commemorate 300 years of baroque composer Corelli.
Considering I’m ‘Fiori Fan’, it’s pretty bad that I’ve not seen Fiori Musicali play live despite them being local. So I put that to rights on Thursday when I took a nice drive over Bilton Grange, a lovely old school in Dunchurch, Warwickshire. Friendly greeting from Fiori Musical at Bilton GrangeI was greeted by a grand building and some friendly students who eagerly opened the door for me – a great first impression. Service with a smile!
