Ushering in the holiday season in festive and grand style, the renowned Hanover Wind Symphony will present an uplifting concert of Christmas music on Sun., Dec. 11, at 3 p.m., at Our Lady of Mercy R.C. Church (OLM), in Whippany.


The celebrated wind band will perform traditional plus new and exciting arrangements of Christmas favorites.

Matthew Paterno of Parsippany, Hanover Wind Symphony music director and conductor, says, “This is always one of our favorite performances of the year and we are so glad that Our Lady of Mercy Church has invited us back for Christmas Presence IX. We have some ancient carols, some modern adaptations of traditional Christmas songs and some totally new and exciting works. Come and join us for an afternoon of great music in a wonderful environment!”


Adds Father Sean Mc Donnell, pastor of Our Lady of Mercy Church, “The Hanover Wind Symphony plays with such enthusiasm that you can’t help but be drawn into what they’re playing. The emotion is conveyed exquisitely.”
