Tell Me More!

Grand Union Youth Orchestra is a group of talented young musicians who play an amazing range of instruments. We blend Indian ragas and Turkish melodies with Latin rhythms and African drumming, with a pinch of jazz and European harmony thrown into the pot. GUYO will totally transform your idea of ‘world music’ and ‘youth orchestra’! This is your chance to discover new instruments, meet like-minded young musicians and find out more about the orchestra.
