The Upper Peninsula League of the San Francisco Symphony was founded by Peninsula residents in 1973. It is one of the Symphony’s volunteer membership groups in the Bay Area, coordinated by the Volunteer Council, also established in 1973. The League’s mission is to support the organization through fundraising, audience development and community engagement activities.
Upper Peninsula League members enjoy supporting the Symphony’s Concerts for Kids program which introduces school children to classical music. For twenty-four years, in cooperation with the San Mateo/Foster City School District, the League has provided volunteer docents, ticket assistance, and transportation for students.
Seniors to the Symphony, a program developed by the Upper Peninsula League, provides chartered transportation for nearly 100 seniors from local Peninsula senior centers to Davies Symphony Hall for a performance by the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra each year. League members prepare box lunches for them, making this a special and much appreciated outing.
Members enjoy unique opportunities throughout the year to participate in various programs and special events that enrich their San Francisco Symphony experience. General meetings are held the third Monday of the month, with a business meeting followed by either a musical performance or educational speaker.
The League’s annual fundraising event, Hats Off to the Symphony, will be held on Wednesday, April 19 at Green Hills Country Club in Millbrae. The afternoon includes seated luncheon with silent auction and live performance by jazz ensemble “In the Mix”. For ticket information, call 415-503-5379.
