Share the Magic of the Hanover Wind Symphony!
One of only a handful of outstanding community-based adult wind bands in New Jersey, the renowned Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) delights audiences of all ages by giving a contemporary twist to traditional favorites. The symphonic band, made up exclusively of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, embraces as its mission bringing “Music to People and People to Music.”
An all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, the Hanover Wind Symphony presents an array of engaging concerts throughout the year, many of them free of charge.
The Hanover Wind Symphony has played to enthusiastic audiences in and around greater Morris County for over a quarter-century. At the group’s premiere performance in 1985, there were 30 musicians. Now in its 27th season, the Hanover Wind Symphony has more than doubled in size.
Roughly half the HWS members have been in the symphony for 15 years or more, with five of the founding members still active.
HWS members are your neighbors--volunteers whose passion for music enriches the cultural fabric of the community with the thrill of live wind band performances.
Funding for the Hanover Wind Symphony has been made possible, in part, by funds from the Arts Council of the Morris Area, through the NJ State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, BT, CH2M Hill, ExxonMobil, the Hanover Township Board of Recreation Commissioners, and the Cultural Arts Committee of Hanover Township, IBM, The Provident Bank, Sanofi Pasteur, Thomson Reuters, Verizon Foundation, and people like you!!
