The Hanover Band



Biography
The Hanover Band

A passion for the recreation of the ‘true sounds’ of the orchestra of the 18th and 19th centuries led Caroline Brown to form The Hanover Band in 1980. The orchestra is well known for its powerful ‘even raucous’ interpretation of the music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries which has thrilled concertgoers in some of the great auditoriums including the Royal Albert Hall, London, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and New York’s Carnegie Hall.

The orchestra has made ten tours of the United States and has performed in thirteen other countries including Canada, Mexico, France, Germany, Switzerland and Spain. Chamber music is an important activity in the Band’s busy concert-giving schedule; Principal Players from The Hanover Band have appeared in many festivals in the UK and have also toured the USA. The orchestra’s specialist woodwind and brass players were formed into The Hanover Wind Band in 1995 to explore Victorian and Ragtime music on period instruments. Its repertoire is based on typical wind-band playing between 1860 and 1920.
