BUSHNELL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
For over 20 years, The Bushnell has affected the lives of over 400,000 young people with award-winning programs that extend beyond the stage, into the classroom and throughout the community. Programs such as the nationally recognized PARTNERS® program use the arts to teach core curriculum with a focus on literacy, as well as develop each young person’s artistic and literary talents. These fundamental goals extend throughout all of The Bushnell's programming and are particularly evident in Bushnell’s Children’s Theatre, the CT Slam Poetry Program, The Noah Webster JAZZicians instrumentalist program, and the full-scholarship Ensign-Darling vocal program.
Ensign-Darling New Voices
The Ensign-Darling Vocal Fellowship Program presents Ensign-Darling New Voices! A young artist program for curious, open-minded, highly motivated and talented singers with strong points of view and stories to tell! EDNV meets performers “where they are” in their journey and encourages each individual to connect more deeply to the ways they self-identify in order to access their most expressive and authentic voices. The experiences of each artist will be unique and built to help them get the most out of the program.
