HANOVER — The Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) is set to present a complimentary concert that will spotlight a solo act by Andrew Joyal, 17, of Denville, the recipient of the 2023 HWS Senior Division Summer Music Scholarship.
Titled “Heartstrings,” the concert is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 25, and will be held at Memorial Junior School, located at 61 Highland Avenue, Whippany.
Andrew Joyal, currently a senior at Morris Knolls High School, is also part of the Juilliard Pre-College program. Having been awarded the 2023 HWS Senior Division Summer Music Scholarship, he participated in the Interlochen Low Brass Intensive. There, he had the esteemed opportunity to showcase his talent in master classes conducted by renowned musicians such as Joseph Alessi, Tom Riccobono, and Jonathan Lombardo.
Additionally, Peter Boor of Brookfield, Conn., the founder and conductor emeritus of HWS, will be a special guest for the event, leading the symphony in two of the musical selections.
Contributions are kindly welcomed and greatly appreciated!
For over thirty years, the Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) has been captivating audiences with its compelling performances. Members of HWS share not only a mutual love for music but also a commitment to enriching the community’s cultural tapestry through the exhilaration of live wind band presentations. They also play a role in guiding the upcoming generation of wind musicians, including Andrew Joyal and Ben Furman, who specialize in mallet percussion.
The funding supporting the Hanover Wind Symphony has been facilitated partly by contributions from Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cultural Arts Committee of Hanover Township.
