After all the hard work, the annual Colyer-Fergusson Cathedral Concert is nearly upon us.

There have been a deluge of rehearsals since the Sunday workshop last week, with the final one tonight before the combined forces of the Chorus and Symphony Orchestra take up their positions in the Cathedral Nave at 11 am tomorrow morning.

The hard work starts even earlier than that, though: a loyal band of students, together with the Deputy Director of Music and the Music Assistant, will be heroically up at the crack of dawn to meet at Eliot College at an eye-watering 9am, to load up the vans with all the equipment to take down the hill to the Cathedral. And the same die-hard band will be returning the equipment to Eliot after the performance; it’s going to be a long day…

Stand by, all: if you hear the sound of Wagner, Stravinsky and Mozart from 7.30pm tomorrow evening, it’s us…
