Grand Union Orchestra and The Garden Youth Music Project in Concert

Presented by The Garden Youth Music Project

The Garden Youth Music Project led by Joanna Eden and Kevin Sporle gives a space for young people to connect with each other through music.

In this concert they join forces with the acclaimed Grand Union Orchestra; formed 40 years ago to bring together performers from all the diverse cultures flourishing in Britain today. Original songs by local young people have been combined with rhythms and sounds from India, Africa and South America to build on the sense of collaboration and oneness.
