This year’s Gala Concert was the result of intense planning, hard work, and discipline culminating in a incredible performance to a sold out audience highlighting 72 countries of the diverse Upper Darby community. Our most recent Gala Celebration raised $45,000 — all of which will be returned to Upper Darby students via Foundation grants for enhanced classroom activities and programs. The Gala is a major source for these funds. In the past 22 years, over 2000 grants have brought more than $2.5 million to Upper Darby School District programs and activities for students.
The UDAEF Gala Concert is one of the largest concerts to benefit public school education to take place in the state of Pennsylvania. Highlights of the Gala include Elementary and Middle School Honors Choruses; an Elementary Honors Band and Middle School and District Honors Orchestras; Upper Darby High School’s Encore Singers, Wind Ensemble and Concert Choir and an all-star faculty jazz band. Outstanding student & alumni soloists add to the excitement and professionalism of this event!
