What people are saying about the
Hanover Wind Symphony

I cannot express enough what a wonderful experience Wednesday’s outreach concert in Hopatcong was for both our students and for the community. Students, parents, faculty and administration alike have not stopped raving about the quality and energy of Hanover’s performance. Students at both the high and middle school levels were thrilled at sharing the stage for the combined performances. Students that participated in masterclasses were happy to report that they learned new things, and each clinician was reported as “cool”, “great”, “helpful”, “incredible” and “fun”. We even gained a new member for marching band from the experience! More than one colleague was inspired by the service of the HWS members to the students and felt that this was one of the greatest experiences they have seen in an educational setting.

I cannot believe what a professional performance this was. I would have paid top dollar for that concert in the city. What a fantastic experience for our kids that they will not soon forget!

Emil Binot, Principal, Hopatcong High School,

Fantastic show! The wind symphony’s music just comes alive! It really has so much life to it. Mr. Paterno does a wonderful job. If we can help it, we never miss a concert. We are very thankful for this wind symphony.

Thank you Hanover Wind Symphony!  Your joyful sound lingers with me long after your grand finales, no matter whether I've attended a rousing outdoor summer concert or one of your more classical performances in nearby communities. Having subscribed to the NJ Symphony series for years, it's obvious that I appreciate the talent of paid professionals.  However, I'm dazzled by the fact that your ensemble is made up of unpaid and equally talented volunteers. I don't know how you maintain such an active schedule in your otherwise busy working lives, but don't stop. You are an inspiration and greatly appreciated by us music lovers.
