Dear Friends,

The Hanover Wind Symphony has another wonderful season of musical performances planned for you. And here’s the best part—you can enjoy it all without having to leave the Morris County area! All those great sounds, including a Christmas show, a jazz concert, rousing outdoor summer concerts, and every one of them close to home. It’s simply going to be breathtaking. What makes it so much fun for us onstage is seeing you in the audience, enjoying the music with us.This is our 34th season of bringing music to people and people to music! We want to thank you for making that possible. Your past donations have played a vital role in keeping the arts alive in Morris County and giving our talented musicians a stage on which to display their passion for music.

We have done some remarkable things over the years—like bringing in world-class clarinetist Stanley Drucker of the New York Philharmonic (retired) and internationally famous tuba player Patrick Sheridan. Remember the night premier classical alto saxophone soloist Paul Cohen performed with us?

Through the years, we’ve played all the standards and the work of newer composers, too! Admit it—we’ve sent you home with a few tunes you couldn’t get out of your head. We’re also making sure the next generation has a place to play their music for generations to come. Hey, don’t forget—this is our community, too!

It all happens because of the donations you make to the Hanover Wind Symphony. What motivates, the Hanover Wind Symphony—70 volunteer members strong—to keep the music playing? It’s you and your support all these years. It’s your willingness to invest in us and the music the Hanover Wind Symphony brings to the community.

Now we need your backing more than ever! We know how much you love what we do and you know how much we love making beautiful music for you. So help us make sure the beat goes on and make a donation to the Hanover Wind Symphony today. It’s a sound investment.

The Hanover Wind Symphony is a 501(c )(3) non-profit volunteer organization. Contributions are tax-deductible.

On a high note,

The Board and Members of the Hanover Wind Symphony
