Broadway comes to Melrose with Polymnia Choral Society’s Pops concert “Sondheim and Schwartz,” 7:30 pm, Saturday, June 6, at Memorial Hall in Melrose, under Music Director Murray Kidd.
The concert will feature music of Broadway giants Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz, including selections from “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” “Into the Woods,” “Godspell,” and “Wicked.”

Kidd said, “This is great music with one of the best bands in the business. It’s a fun time for whole family. And our Spotlight winners are fantastic!”
Drinks and snacks will be available at the concert and baskets of prizes will be raffled off.
