Polymnia Choral Society Salute to Broadway
Devin McCall, Melrose High School senior and winner of Polymnia’s “Spotlight on High School Talent” contest, will sing with the choral group at its Spring Pops Concert. Under the baton of Music Director Murray Kidd, Polymnia will present “A Salute to Broadway.” Music will include a wide variety of songs from composers such as Rogers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, and “Fats” Waller.
McCall has appeared in many productions, most recently in Melrose High School’s “Legally Blond: The Musical” and has won awards for acting excellence. She will perform “Taylor the Latte Boy” and sing with Polymnia on several other numbers. Popular local performer Leigh Barrett will be the guest soloist and the a cappella men’s group Blue of a Kind will also be featured.
“We’re doing a very diverse and fun group of songs. We will be joined by a professional band of amazing jazz professionals and they are going to take our music even higher in energy,” said Kidd.
Drinks and snacks will be available and there will be a silent auction. Polymnia is a not-for-profit organization, supported in part by a grant from the Melrose Cultural Council, a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Tickets are $25, $15 for seniors and students, and $30 for table tickets, available online at www.polymnia.org or at Miter Biter, 479 Main Street or Sweet Thoughts, 504 Main Street, Melrose.

More About Memorial Hall - Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Building
The Soliders & Sailors Memoiral Building was dedicated on Dec. 14, 1912 in remembrance of the soldiers and sailors of the Civil War. John Slayton donated the building to the city and was chairman of the building committee.
Memorial Hall hosts events throughout the year and features a seating capacity of 800 in the main auditorium, which has a 30-foot by 40-foot stage, dressing rooms and a public address system. The main auditorium is also home to a grand organ at the rear of the stage, dedicated in 1919 as a memorial to the World War I veterans.
The Grand Army of the Republic Hall (GAR) is located in the upstairs portion of the building. It has a seating capacity of 60 to 100 and is adjacent to a full commercial kitchen facility.
