Scenes from the Bushnell


Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship

The Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship of The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts is a full-scholarship vocal program for a select number of very talented and highly-motivated high school-aged singers interested in classical and theatrical music. Founded in 2002, the fellowship fosters the education and careers of young, serious singers through private voice lessons, vocal coaching, tutoring in musical skills, master classes, and performance opportunities. The fellowship, made possible by a generous gift from the Darling family of Simsbury, CT, presents singers with an exciting and unique opportunity to pursue their passion for music.

Auditions are held annually at The Bushnell. For more information on the Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship, please contact Brenda Lopez, Program Manager, at (860) 987-6042,
