Congrats to Danbury PLTI's Darla Shaw and Barry Finch

The Danbury News Times recently profiled the members of Ridgefield's Founders Hall Band, who include Danbury PLTI graduates Darla Shaw and Barry Finch. The band, also known as the Senior Melodiers, rehearses at the local senior center and has performed everywhere from birthday parties to concert venues.

Darla, a Western Connecticut State University professor as well as the band's manager, started playing the accordion nine years ago. "We're still evolving," she told the News Times. "We want to continue to grow and learn. If we're not the best musicians, that's OK."
