In Pictures / Darien shows off its talent

DARIEN — The Darien Arts Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday evening clearly confirmed something many residents suspected — “Darien’s Got Talent.”

There were 21 talented finalist acts from around the region at Darien High School who competed the DAC’s fourth “Darien’s Got Talent” competition—everything from singers and songwriters, to a hula hoop gymnast, a rapper, and a ventriloquist.

“It gives the community a chance to express their creative side,” said Dana Fead, DAC board secretary.

There were 80 auditions recently with people off all ages, with the finalists brought before five judges Saturday night with professional expertise and a hard decision to make.

“I’ve had parents come up to me and thank us for the opportunity,” Fead said. “It’s magic.”
