Anybody living in East London today are witness to the generations of migrants who moulded the city, creating an identity of multi culture across all spectrums. The Grand Union Orchestra new show - 'Undreamed Shores', does just that with an elegant ease with a compilation of 100's of performers, each adding flavour and dynamic to the overwhelmingly impressive soundscape.

Tony Haynes, the mastermind and composer behind the Grand Union Orchestra, manages to bring out a vivid uniqueness to each individual performer, creating a significant role subjectively, thus adding to an overall masterpiece of music unification.

Every instrument imaginable is taken to the stage and put to use, with performers telling a story which takes you on a colourful journey. Its no surprise that 'undreamed' shores' is the product of an 18 month project, as watching the perform ace you can see each minor detail and craftsmanship of the spectacle, which is truly a feast for both the eyes and ears. If there was anyone who could achieve putting together a musical story that reflects the multi cultural history and compress it in a few hours, it seems, Tony Haynes has achieved it.
