Fiori are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the Continuo Foundation for our Autumn/Winter series! This is fantastic news enabling us to give four exciting performances between now and the end of January:

12 Days of Christmas programme repeated at All Saints’ Parish Church, Bakewell 19 December

The Continuo Foundation’s aim is “to help UK period-instrument ensembles to create inspiring live music experiences for more people in more places, enhancing the lives of musicians and audiences of all ages in communities across the country.” To date, the Continuo Foundation have supported 95 projects engaging in over 630 freelance musicians, “…touring to under-served areas of the UK.” This is a vision about which Fiori also care passionately.

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.

Canons Ashby

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.
