Hanover Wind Symphony Family

Hanover Wind Symphony Family

What is a family? The traditional definition says it is a group of people related by blood or ancestry. To some, it has nothing to do with genes and everything to do with love, compassion, and support. We consider you - our members, friends, and audience as our Hanover Wind Symphony family.

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.

With your companionship and support, we have been able to complete 35 seasons of performing music. Playing music together is wonderful – as you will hear about in the video below – but sharing it with all of you adds magic to it. The joy of live concerts comes from the connection between the musicians and the listeners. The synergies created can make us tap our feet, clap our hands, and even bring a tear to our eyes.

We did a lot of bonding this past season:

  • Working with a young oboe soloist, Evelyn Tomaro, who shared her love of music with us in October.
  • Seeing the audience stand and sing along to God Bless America last November at North Hunterdon High School was an extremely moving experience to all in attendance.
  • Our annual Christmas concert at Our Lady of Mercy church is a tradition in Hanover Township – not to mention standing room only!
  • Our 35th Anniversary concert in February was a truly magical evening with so many of our friends and family in attendance! Sharing our stories and music with all of you made it a most memorable evening. If you did not get to meet our All-Star musicians, take a stroll through our photo gallery.
  • COVID-19 kept us home, but it did not keep us down! We sprang to life at Ginty Field in August to a very large and enthusiastic crowd!

Our motto of “bringing music to people and people to music” is our commitment to you. We look forward to keeping the music flowing in our 36th season, so stay tuned for details as they become available.
