The Hanover Band
Outstanding Specialists in Recreating the Sounds of
Founded by Artistic
Director Caroline Brown in 1980,
The Hanover Band has established an unrivalled
international reputation for the excellence of
its performances and recordings of music from the
18th and 19th centuries.
The list of guest-directors who work with the Band
reads like a Who's Who of period instrument interpretation; Monica
Huggett, Sir Charles Mackerras, Roy Goodman, Nicholas
McGegan, Anthony Halstead and Richard
Egarr. Recently there has been a new
and exciting departure for the wind and brass players
with the formation of The Hanover Wind Band, whose
aim is to explore the rich repertoire of Sousa, Strauss,
Sullivan and their contemporaries.
Based in Sussex The Hanover
Band has a long-term strategy to bring musical excellence
to the South East of England, developing community
links through an extensive education programme. These
links have been strengthened further since the Band
has moved into its new home, The Old Market, Hove.
With the help of funding
from the National Lottery the building's redevelopment
has not only given the orchestra a new base for its
activities it has become a centre for other local
arts, community and education events.
