Musicman Festival and Virtual 5k

This year the Festival & 5K look a little different from prior years, as many things do. But we believe it is important to our students, families and communities to keep the music playing in Upper Darby, so… The Show Must Go On! Let’s come together for our community and the legacy of The MusicMan – Brad Schoener – to keep the music playing in Upper Darby and throughout Delaware County!

Proceeds from the Virtual 5K Run and 1 Mile Spirit Walk support the Brad Schoener Memorial Fund. The mission of the Memorial Fund is to support the musical abilities and aspirations of instrumental music students in the Upper Darby School District through the funding of instruments, instruction, and experiences for interested and talented students who might not otherwise have the opportunities due to personal circumstances.
