Drawing on the collaborative spirit of rock bands and the composer-led nature of classical music, Golden Hornet commissions new music, fosters young and emerging composers, and presents adventurous works in non-traditional settings. We are a composer laboratory for the 21st century.


Graham Reynolds co-founded the organization in 1999, which has since grown in capacity. Graham continues to lead the organization in his role as Artistic Director.

The ambition and invention of Golden Hornet range from symphonies, soundtracks, to improvised super rock. Their recordings are a catalog of their adventures crossbreeding classical futurism and punk esprit.
