Fiori Musicali

Fiori Foundation - Step #5

Fiori Musicali bring world-class musicians to beautiful places, many in rural areas, reaching out to those who lack the opportunity to experience near them music of the highest quality. We wish to strengthen our outreach to older people and those who are isolated by the challenges of travel.

Situation

Boosted by The Big Give, our supporters have helped us extend our outreach in rural areas and we continue to grow in organisational strength. Our new daytime workshops, which particularly suit older people and enable them to meet the artistic director personally, have been extremely popular. But we still must do more to counter rural isolation which particularly disadvantages older people and which is made worse with the bankruptcy of Northamptonshire County Council and 21 rural libraries axed.

Solution

Your generous support has helped us to raise Fiori Musicali’s profile as a strategic resource for the Arts in and around Northamptonshire, attract new audiences, access increased funding and communicate with 'hard to reach' older rural audiences. The founders continue to concentrate on their strengths – artistic quality, business strategy and fundraising. This project is our most important to date and is enabling us to find new ways of reaching, involving and giving joy to people in rural areas.
