A Musical City
If you enjoy a good melody and tune every now and then, Hanover is home to three notable, local music groups. The Lancers Drum and Bugle Corps was founded in 1920 and played as a marching group until it disbanded in 1983 due to financial troubles. The Corps is now an alumni group that still gets together and entertains occasionally. The Lyric Band of Hanover has entertained listeners weekly since 1969 and has a strong reputation for being an active community service participant. The Hanover Symphony, located on Carlisle Street, was founded in 1995 and is entirely a non-profit musical entertainment group. They play regular concerts throughout the area and sponsor scholarships for local high school seniors.
