Free Hanover Wind Symphony Concert Explores City Moods

The renowned Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) plans to offer a musical medley celebrating “A Night in the Big City,” on Wed., Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., at Memorial Junior School in Whippany. This concert will explore through music the many moods of city life.
Says Matthew Paterno of Parsippany, HWS musical director and conductor, “Join the Hanover Wind Symphony as we ‘paint the town red’ with our concert ‘A Night in the Big City.’ Hear the music of the streets and visit the famous sites on a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps!
“The energy and excitement of the big city come through in the musical repertoire that we have chosen. We want to take the audience on a fast-paced, exciting visit to some of the famous sites and sounds the city has to offer. The only question is this: How much fun can we pack into a single night?”
The Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) has played to enthusiastic audiences at regional venues throughout the Northeast, including the Boston Festival of Bands at Faneuil Hall in Boston; the New York Brass Conference in New York City; the Nicholas Music Center at Rutgers University in New Brunswick; the Weis Performing Arts Center at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa.; The Abbey at Delbarton in Morristown; the Natirar Estate in Peapack; the Community Theatre in Morristown; and the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City.
HWS members are volunteers who share a love for music as well as a passion for enriching the cultural fabric of the community with the thrill of live wind band performances. By day, HWS members are accountants, engineers, teachers and executives. They come together to connect musically with others, share the enjoyment of music with live audiences, and help mentor the next generation of wind musicians.
HWS is a recipient of a Morris Arts grant.
