Biography

Fiori Musicali are one of the main providers of classical and early music concerts outside London. Founded by artistic director Dr Penelope Rapson, Fiori perform to thousands of music lovers across central England annually, showcasing some of today's finest specialist musicians. Fiori appear in many formats - as a chamber ensemble, as a choir, and as a nationally recognised orchestra in concerts ranging from renaissance to early romantic and beyond. Fiori have a number of acclaimed CDs in the catalogues, including first performances in modern times. Fiori have a residency with the National Trust at the Dryden family seat, Canons Ashby, where Fiori's musicians provide traditional choral services in the ancient Priory Church. Fiori also have a residency at Sulgrave Manor (ancestral home of the Washington family) with a regular annual concert series. Fiori are part of Northamptonshire's Strategic Arts Network and have a delivery partnership with the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust and their young musicians. Fiori Musicali have also revived the 17th-century tradition of celebrating the Feast of St Cecilia, patron saint of music, in the City of London. These events, described by The Telegraph as "The Glyndebourne of the City" take place each year around 22 November.
