Mission Statement

Bringing music to people
and people to music.

The Hanover Wind Symphony, a community-based organization, brings music to people and people to music. Through the presentation of dynamic performances, the Symphony enriches the cultural fabric of the community, supporting and educating New Jersey music lovers of all ages. We are committed to advancing excellence in the wind band tradition, while providing growth opportunities for adults who are continuing their musical avocation.
