The Hanover Band is delighted to announce our formal appointment as ‘Orchestra in Residence’ at The University of Chichester.

The Band will contribute its ongoing educational work, developing a programme of orchestral performance study for students. To begin with, this will focus on the performance of Beethoven’s music, in line with our 2020 celebrations.

Students will study performance works through a process of seminars and workshops, focussing on period performance techniques, combined with artistic interpretation.

The relationship paves the way for the next generation of artists to be nurtured and developed in the framework of a professional setting. It allows The Hanover Band to pass on and share its abundant expertise and intimate knowledge of these period works through a direct, hands-on process, focussed on guiding and igniting renewed inspiration for performing these period masterpieces.
