After my first couple of Fiori concerts it was obvious that there was a gap in my classical and baroque knowledge. I can easily enjoy the music without knowing the technical bits but I rock the geek chic (or I'm just a geek) so I like to know the whys and wherefores.
Fiori Musicali take a trip to yet another stunning location this Sunday 11th August to mark 30 years since their founding. And what a show you can expect!
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?
Have you promised yourself that you'll get out a bit more this year? Perhaps you're like me and want to find more out about the history of Northamptonshire and the beautiful location in the county? Maybe you'd like see more live musical performances? Well, this is a post for you!
