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!
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!
Did you catch '2Day' on Friday? Radio 2 mixed things up for the day, changing the scheduling to showcase the variety of music played by the station with this year's focus on the 'Orchestra'. Each programme looked at the groups of instruments in an orchestra throughout the day. I liked that I was learning as well as enjoying a brilliant mix of music. For example did you know that an orchestra does not include a saxophone?
