Now in our 35th season, the Hanover Wind Symphony announces its new lineup of exciting performances.
Our season opens on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 7:00pm with a concert at our home venue, Memorial Junior School in Whippany. We’re diving into our vault of 35 years’ worth of music, selecting some of our favorites that have been tucked away – the hidden gems….and some new ones. This concert will also feature our 2019 scholarship winner oboist Evelyn Tomaro of Chatham. Join us for a post-concert reception to meet all the players.
We travel west to honor and celebrate those who serve and have contributed to our nation’s defense with a star-spangled salute to veterans on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 2:00pm at North Hunterdon High School in Annandale.
