Saluting the men and women of our armed forces, past and present, the renowned Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) will perform a rousing “Patriotic Concert” on Saturday, November 16, at 2:00 pm, at North Hunterdon High School, located at 1445 Route 31 South, in Annandale, New Jersey. The concert will benefit organizations supporting active-duty service personnel and military veterans.
HWS music director Matthew Paterno said, “The Hanover Wind Symphony is honored and proud to be part of a Patriotic Concert like this. Paying tribute to our veterans through music is a way that we can give back to those who gave so much.”
In addition to the HWS performance, the event will include performances by Broadway performers Bart Shatto and Elena Shaddow; singers Jeanne Resua Dunham and Olivia Terpin; the 35-member Hunterdon Harmonizers and the North Hunterdon Show Choir.
One of only a handful of outstanding community-based adult wind bands in New Jersey, the Hanover Wind Symphony delights audiences of all ages by giving a contemporary twist to traditional favorites.
