Grand Union Orchestra

There is no musical organisation on the planet quite like the Grand Union Orchestra. We bring together the best musicians from all over the world to create stunning original music and spectacular live shows.

You can hear audio tracks on our Music page and see video clips on the Video page. CDs can be bought from our online shop.

Tony Haynes writes a regular music blog describing some of his composition techniques. Taking examples from his enormous output of music for the Grand Union Orchestra over the last 25 years, he bases his analysis on recordings on our Music page.
