There is no musical organisation on the planet quite like the Grand Union Orchestra. For over 30 years, we have brought together glorious singers and stunning instrumentalists from all over the world to create spectacular live shows, combining music and theatre and reflecting vividly the society we live in today.
TRADING ROOTS is a new initiative, answering the need for something smaller and flexible, but embodying the principles and practice of Undream'd Shores and other larger projects. It typically combines 10 to 18 performers drawn from a pool of about 24 core Grand Union musicians born and bred into many different major musical traditions worldwide. Besides stand-alone performances, it also provides ample scope for workshops, and often participants (adults or young people) can be included in the performance. It is also a useful vehicle for recruiting new performers to GUO.
