Much music little knitting

A shocking lack of knitting going on chez redbird! A few stitches here and there on a few on my many projects including some sock knitting that went on in the church while waiting for our turn to play on Sunday.

Trial by Jury was a blast! Apparently it was the first Gilbert and Sullivan done at St Anne's long ago and a perfect one to present along with a time scan of music played over the 100 years' history of the church. Started with Stanford - hadn't heard it before but my brother and father sang it in Westminster Abbey (yes, the one in London, England) many years ago on a choir tour they went on with Grace Church on the Hill.

And here they are in front of the Abbey:

Dad on the left and Ian , my brother on the right.

I am playing tonight with two of the people who were on that trip - one is my bro and the other is Irene who was along with her then husband - the conductor of the choir. Tiny small world!

We are playing Brahms' Clarinet Quintet and likely also the Mozart and Carl Maria von Weber. Should be fun!

But no knitting!

Must run!
