The Beauty of Voice and Song

                              Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship Lifts Hearts and Spirits at McLean                             during the 5th Annual Concert Simsbury

 Bob Darling loved many things, including Simsbury, McLean, music and The Bushnell. On Sunday, December 8th, these interests merged together when the Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship performed its 5th Annual Concert at McLean Health Center. The Fellowship is a program of The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and created through the vision and generosity of Bob Darling. A full-scholarship program, the Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship provides conservatory-like training for students in Connecticut. Many will remember Bob as a member of the Simsbury Light Opera. Additionally, the Darling Pool and Wellness Center at McLean also bears his family name. His generous legacy continues to serve our community and lift hearts and spirits.
