WESTPORT - Several local kids will take to the stage in Westport to showcase their musical skills and raise money for autism.
Ethan Walmark, an 8-year-old diagnosed with autism as a toddler, plays the keyboard in the band Clueless with some members who are nearly twice his age. His parents enrolled him in the School of Rock a year ago.
Walmark made such an impression on those he plays with that they decided to plan a concert in his honor and raise money for autism research and awareness.
