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.
I teased you last month with mention of Fiori Musicali’s singing trip to the stunning Lake Como. So now you get to see what a great time was had by the choir because it turns out that it has some budding photographers.
Fiori have a brilliant weekend lined up so I thought it only polite to let you know what’s on.
Fiori’s friends at the National Trust are hosting their live rehearsal on Saturday afternoon at the stunning Canon’s Ashby. It’s an open rehearsal which means that anyone can drop in and listen for free!
There are 2 exciting Fiori concerts over the next week to entertain you! First off is Fiori’s traditional choral concert at St Peter’s Church, Wolfhampcote this Sunday 29 June.

It’s not often that you hear of a classical music concert likened to the mudfest that is Glastonbury but that’s just what you can expect from Fiori Musicali’s midsummer concert at Wolfhampcote. Obviously just without the mud and rain!
