Hanover Wind Symphony will give a free concert | Hanover Eagle News

HANNOVER TWP. – The Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) will perform a free concert titled “The Joy Within” at Memorial Junior School in Whippany at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 16.

In accordance with COVID-19 protocols, mask wearing and appropriate social distancing are required on school property.

The 85-member wind band will present a program of traditional and contemporary orchestral music, including “Joyride” by Michael Markowski, “Dusk” by Steven Bryant and “As I Walked through the Meadow” by Pierre LaPlante.

“The Hanover Wind Symphony is pleased to share our passion for music making with the community and how music produces ‘The Joy Within,'” said HWS Music Director and Conductor Matthew Paterno of Parsippany. “Also, we are very happy to have our 2021 Student Soloist Scholarship winner, Isabelle Mailman, performing with us on saxophone and also sharing her love of performance with our audience.”

Mailman used his HWS scholarship to study privately with Paul Cohen, an American saxophonist who is a saxophone professor at Rutgers University’s Gross School of the Arts.

“Working with Izzy Mailman has been a celebration of enthusiasm, fierce musical interest, uncommon emerging artistry, and overwhelming talent,” Cohen said. “A joy to work with, she has learned these sophisticated and difficult pieces at an astonishing rate and performs them on an artistic level far beyond her years. I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more from Izzy Mailman.”

A junior at Wayne Valley High School, Mainman is a member of the marching band, symphony orchestra, two jazz bands and the saxophone quintet.

“Isabelle is an exceptional musician who has distinguished herself in ensembles in her school, her community, her region and her region,” Paterno said. “His musicality and technique are mature beyond his years.”

Mailman will perform two solo selections with the Hanover Wind Symphony. These are “Diversions for Alto Saxophone and Band” by Bernhard Heiden and “Ballade for Alto Saxophone and Band” by Alfred Reed.
