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!
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!
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.
