Upper-Peninsula League

The Upper Peninsula League (UPL) supports the Symphony in audience development, community service, and fundraising. The League’s signature fundraiser, Hats Off to the Symphony Tea, received a national award from the League of American Symphony Orchestras in 2005.

The UPL is highly active in the docent program of the Symphony’s Education Department. League members receive training and visit more than fifteen public schools each year to prepare up to 1,000 students to attend Concerts for Kids at Davies Symphony Hall. In 1994, the UPL adopted several classes in the San Mateo-Foster City School District, where League members provide classroom presentations and fund students’ attendance and transportation to Symphony concerts.

The UPL also initiated the Seniors to the Symphony program, which provides transportation, prepares box lunches, and escorts seniors from recreation centers in San Mateo County to Davies Symphony Hall each year to attend a concert by the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra.
