Find Your Heart in Upper Darby Arts!


Brad Schoener always advocated that “everyone should have the opportunity to play an instrument” — no matter what their age! In keeping with Brad’s energy to spread love for music throughout the Upper Darby community — this summer we launched the “Hummin’ and Strummin'” class at the Pilgrim Gardens Senior Center and these ladies LOVED it! Instructed by Schoener MusicMan Camp guitar teacher, Anna Gentile, they knew right away that they wanted to compose their own song and perform it for their peers! Working with Sr. Center Director, Donna Gallo, these seniors proved that they are true performers at heart and sang their way into the hearts of a packed house in August! Now they are busy getting ready for their next class this fall. They will be performing for their holiday show in December at Anthony’s Ristorante in Drexel Hill, PA.
