Polly Virr (cello) performs for 0-7s as part of the Society of Explorers' Cyber Cafe exhibition.

Join Concerteenies for a musical morning with your 0-7 year olds, celebrating how technology can influence and inspire music-making! These are relaxed and family-friendly concerts in collaboration with Site Gallery as part of the Society of Explorers’ exhibition Cyber Cafe, with informal introductions, percussion, props, bubbles and more!

Polly Virr is an inspirational contemporary performer working as a soloist, with orchestras, bands and ensembles around the UK including Kaleidoscope Orchestra, Manchester Collective, The Charlatans and Gatecrasher Orchestra. As an educator, she has worked as a teaching artist with Opera North’s In Harmony project in Leeds and is cello tutor for Olympias Music Foundation based in Manchester. She has performed regularly at Manchester Children's Hospital and in 2021, Polly was a mentor for Sheffield’s Hubfest Momentum.

Cyber Cafe takes inspiration from the first internet cafes that acted as a site for optimism and excitement at the early potential of the internet. These spaces offered new possibilities for connection, collaboration and creative self expression. Site Gallery’s young people’s collective the Society of Explorers have collaborated with artists Antonio Roberts and Lucy Cheesman over a series of workshops, experimenting with open-source platforms and old technologies. Together they have designed an interactive exhibition reimagining the creative potential of the internet cafe of today.
