Put on some dancing shoes as the celebrated Hanover Wind Symphony presents “Symphonic Dances” set for Sun., Feb. 26, at 2 p.m., at the Bickford Theatre in the Morris Museum.
Says HWS musical director Matthew Paterno of Parsippany, “This is a very challenging program, which features many soloists throughout the works. The literature provides our audience with a chance to hear the Hanover Wind Symphony as amazing individual musicians, as well as a terrific ensemble.
“Some dance music is cultural, some celebratory, and some an expression of intense emotion or feeling. The Hanover Wind Symphony invites you to an afternoon of dance-inspired music from around the world. The musical selections span many different historical periods, and are sure to entertain and enlighten our listeners.”
For more than 30 years, the Hanover Wind Symphony has played to enthusiastic audiences. HWS members are volunteers who share a love for music and 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.
Tickets to the “Symphonic Dances” concert are $25 apiece for the general public; $20 apiece for museum members and seniors.
