    Join the Filarmonica Today!

    Become a member of the Filarmónica União Portuguesa de San Diego today!

    We continue to reach out to the youth and adults in our community with a love for music who would like to join our Portuguese band. Our marching band performs throughout the year here in San Diego at many social and civic events but the greatest part is that we also travel abroad to various cities throughout California to represent our city of San Diego. Many youth members in our group enjoy traveling and playing at various functions. It helps them learn more about our tradition & culture.

    You do not need to be Portuguese to join!
