About us

Founded in 1983, Fiori are one of the UK’s principal providers of classical and early music concerts outside London. Fiori’s passion is to bring to life the music of the past, making it accessible to all. Showcasing some of today’s finest specialist musicians. Fiori perform as a chamber ensemble, a choir and as a nationally recognised chamber orchestra.

Ranging from renaissance choral music to early romantic repertoire and beyond (with an emphasis on the glorious music of the baroque) Fiori’s annual season of around 30 concerts takes place in outstanding historic venues, mostly in the heart of England.

Never ‘off the shelf’, Fiori’s concerts are unique, melding artistry and atmosphere to create musical experiences that inform and inspire.


Founder director Dr Penelope Rapson creates, presents and directs all Fiori’s performances.
