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.
