Fiori Musicali – Meet the skipper

Fiori Musicali
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!

Take a trip to Castle Ashby to celebrate high summer!

Fiori Musicali play concertos from baroque greats Vivaldi, Handel and Bach – in the ancient church of St Mary Magdalene 28 July 2013. To celebrate high summer, Fiori will delight you with a performance of music from the high baroque (a phrase to describe music from the latter years of the baroque period 1600-1750) in their annual summer concert in the beautiful estate church at Castle Ashby.

Vivaldi’s Venice at Bilton Grange 30th May

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!
