Hot on the heels of the success of Cambridgeshire Music’s first Online Orchestra, we’re pleased to bring you news of the music education hub’s second Online Orchestra challenge!
For the first challenge, you may recall that Cambridgeshire Music transported everyone to the sunny beaches of Hawaii with a heart-warming performance of the classic theme tune Hawaii Five-0.
Thanks to local coverage, almost 6,000 people have watched our YouTube premiere, which brought together fifty performers from across Cambridgeshire and beyond.
For the second challenge, Cambridgeshire Music is asking the musicians of Cambridgeshire to sunnier climes once again, by inviting them play their part in the popular dance tune ‘La Bamba’.
La Bamba is a fun-filled Mexican dance tune immortalised in the 1950s by Ritchie Valens and then by the band Los Lobos, whose 1980s version made it all the way to number 1 in the UK and US hit parade!
Visit Cambridgeshire Music’s website for more details here.
We look forward to sharing the final video with you in the first week of June.
