​Support us: become a Friend of Grand Union

Why support Grand Union?

For 30 years the Grand Union Orchestra (GUO) has been the acknowledged pioneer and leading exponent of cross-cultural music-making in the UK.

As a charity GUO operates a year round participation programme led by its professional musicians from around the world, bringing a unique, cross-cultural, authentic dimension to its work.

Each tailored session takes place in a variety of settings including schools, community and youth centres. Sessions are based on different styles of world music such as African, Chinese, Latin and Indian, all of which are fused with jazz and improvisation.
