The Fieri Consort was founded in 2012 and is made up of vibrant and skilled young ensemble singers based in London. The singers met studying on The Sixteen’s prestigious young artists programme, Genesis Sixteen and, in order to continue singing together and exploring similar musical interests, The Fieri Consort was established. Members of the consort sing with many other groups, including The Sixteen, Britten Sinfonia Voices, Tenebrae and many London churches.
Fieri is a non-conducted ensemble, often with one or two voices to a part. This makes for invigorating performances where each and every singer is vital and where all play an equal role in rehearsal and musical interpretation. Fieri performs primarily as a group of eight but sometimes as a smaller or larger ensemble. The name, Fieri, means ‘to become’; a fitting title for this group of dedicated young musicians who are embarking on their professional careers.
