Calling Singers Young & Old!

Calling Singers Young & Old!

Posted by Harriet O'Connor | 14 March 2019 | Arts & Culture, Wimbledon Kids

Calling singers young & old! Come along and be part of this exciting new choir. Join the Polka and Merton Music Foundation in celebrating the Polka’s 40th year in style by singing in Merton’s only intergenerational choir. The sessions are free, weekly and open to everyone. There is no need to audition and no need for experience.

The Polka may have closed its doors for now, but luckily for us they are not staying quiet. At Wimbledon Kids, we couldn’t be more excited to hear that they have teamed up with Merton Music Foundation to launch a brand new choir called Re:Sound. Re:Sound is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to enjoy together, with all ages, from 5 years to 105 years welcome.*

When Polka asked audiences what they loved most about their theatre, they said ‘The music’. There are many much-loved classics such as Giraffe the Pelly & Me, Gorilla and The Everywhere Bear. And so they decided to start a choir… with a difference! Singers will learn four Polka classics, and be the first to sing an exclusive new commission by Julian Butler at a special performance on 6 July.

Come along to one of the following sessions to meet the team and get an exclusive peek at their brand new show PROPerty of Polka.

We can’t wait to hear Re:Sound in action.

When:  19th March – 6th July
Where:  The sessions will take place across Merton and are open to everyone but *singers under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
