It is with great delight that the Grand Union Orchestra brings its 40th anniversary year to a joyous close with TWO SPECIAL celebratory performances at Shoreditch Town Hall.
The year-long anniversary programme has seen Grand Union Orchestra’s matchless style and unique sound continue to reflect the creative vitality and artistic life-force of Britain’s multi-cultural society, as it has done for 40 years, since 1982, when the orchestra was founded by composer Tony Haynes.
“With its unlikely combination of global influences and big-band jazz, Grand Union Orchestra has always occupied a category of its own.. the variety is endless” – The Guardian
Saturday 3rd December: an adventurous evening, featuring all the Grand Union’s much-loved core performers – extraordinary singers and musicians from every major global musical tradition.
Secondly, 4th December: the first formal performance of the new Shoreditch and Hoxton Community Orchestra, commissioned and supported by funding from Hackney Council, to enable enthusiastic musicians from across the Borough to discover the musical cultures flourishing in their neighbourhood.
People living, working or studying locally have been invited to dust off their old instruments, put their performing inhibitions to one side, come together and contribute their own experience to a musical journey, creating a unique ensemble and repertoire, that truly represents their rich collective cultural heritage.
