Summer isn’t over yet!
It’s that time of year where the summer’s drawing to a close. But suspend your dismay, summer is still in full swing!
As you know, it’s Fiori’s 30th birthday. There have been some gorgeous summer performances to mark the occasion and the celebrations continue next month.
8th September, Fiori are joined at the stunning Fawsley church by star violinist Monica Huggett.
Fiori have described Monica as a maestro of baroque and for very good reason!
Monica first discovered the baroque violin as a teen. She now tours all over the world and champions baroque music. Internationally recognised for her impressive performances of Bach’s solo music for the violin, Monica is Artistic Director of the Portland Baroque Orchestra, and the Irish Baroque Orchestra.
Joining Monica is violinist Emilia Benjamin, David Miller on chitaronne (the chitaronne is a type of lute) and Fiori director Penelope Rapson on the organ. It promises to be a sparkling spectacle of brilliant Italian music.
How often do you get to hear 17th-century music like it would’ve been heard in Venice at the time? Remember, Fiori play on baroque instruments so you can be sure that the sound is authentic as it gets.
If you can’t make 8th, you’re in luck! The concert is repeated in Pembroke College Chapel, Oxford the next day in aid of the Kianda Foundation. The foundation trains and educates women and girls in Kenya so that they can live a dignified life. Who wouldn’t want to support that?
