    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!

    For more information please contact:

About United Portuguese S.E.S. Inc

San Diego’s Portuguese community today is made up of immigrants from the Azores, Madeira, and mainland Portugal going back five generations in some cases. As Portuguese, we have a natural pride in our traditions and in the global accomplishments of our ancestors. We strive to honor those who have come before us, preserve our traditions and customs, and instill in our youth the spirit of devotion to the Espirito Santo, so our community will go forward in faith and tradition, generation after generation.
