About Grand Union Orchestra

Grand Union, the UK's most successful and diverse world/jazz orchestra was established in 1984. The Grand Union Orchestra is the acknowledged pioneer and leading exponent of original, cross-cultural music making. It assembles musicians from virtually every part of the world to create and perform new work drawing on their own experience, culture and musical background.

Grand Union’s priority is live performance and touring. Early shows include The Song of Many Tongues, A Book of Numbers and Songlines, followed by Freedom Calls, The Rhythm of Tides, Now Comes the Dragon’s Hour and If Paradise… ” all of which were recorded by the BBC, broadcast on Radio 3 and subsequently published as CDs. Over the last 20 years, Grand Union has notched up hundreds of performances across virtually the whole of the UK, and has produced projects in Holland, Germany, Paris, Luxembourg, Lisbon & Southern Portugal, Shanghai, Turkey, Bangladesh and Australia.
