I agree with the previous post..starting with a solo piece is daunting..

I have played many concerts and always start with something light, short and comfortable..it puts my audience in a good mood which in turn makes me feel good and confident..

The same with a closing piece, end with something up beat and fun...such as celtic pieces..

Anything that might challenge the audience is best put in the center...if it doesn't go over well, they will still remember how you started and how you ended

i have been debating putting the mozart first...

unfortunately I have already printed the programs. Do you think it would be ok to announce a change in the program? I played the CPE bach in front of 600 people this summer in a cruise ship talent competition (and won) so I am ok with that one for sure. I am ok with the JS Bach too...

wasn't sure if it was ok musically to not do it in chronological order.

I don't have anything in the the program that will challenge the listener.

I live in an area with virtually no classical community but a huge gospel scene that is why I am doing the hymns and stuff and easily accessible classical pieces.

Would you consider the Bolling as a fun piece to end with? I actually have a full trio playing with me (piano, percussion and bass- well bass guitar not double bass)

Anyways, there were 120 paying people there (!) and I felt very relaxed. I had a minor bobble in the bourree and the mozart but nothing major at all. After those very small mistakes I did not play a single wrong note and played musically. I am so happy about that. It was a blast and I am excited about doing another one!!!
