Musical Prodigy: The Polymnia Choral Society's March concert at Memorial Hall was delightful and featured the rich tones of Brendan Carroll, noted Boston Irish tenor. But much of the music that night was conducted by this small child, who, tired of being seated in the front row, took advantage of the arrangement to either conduct the group, or to do a twirling, arm-waving jig at the front of the auditorium. She was perfect for her job and the concert was a roaring success.
