It’s a day of Bach to Bach community missions today in Kingston, with Kate and Samia having come from Fishponds and St Paul’s School. What a Bizet day, there’s certainly nothing to B Flat about!

This task was all about setting up the chairs for Kingston Choral Society’s concert this evening, so we arrived ready for a free weight training session.

Can we Handel it?

300?? Chor-al blimey, that’s a lot of chairs to lift. Nevertheless, we were sure we could Handel it, especially after finding out that some other helpers had already done the major-ity.

Carmen Rob, where are you Haydn?

As if by magic (flute), he appeared with a smoothie in hand and ready for his fair chair of lifting.

Don’t Strauss about it”,

Kate and Samia chimed, "there’s minim-al work left to do, it will just be breve".

Nailing the chair placing to a fine (Moz)art, we left a (Wolf)gangway for the audience to get to their seats and decided against clipping the chairs together so that the audience we free to shuffle. We were then given a Liszt of a few more tasks to do before we could get on with our weekend Chopin.

With the church looking sharp and any accidental damage stave-d off, all that’s left is for the audience to take their seats and Ravel in the music.

We’ll be Bach at 10 for the Moonlight (sonata) stint.
