Cambridgeshire’s first Online Orchestra

Aloha! We’re delighted to unveil the very first performance by Cambridgeshire’s Online Orchestra – in a specially arranged version of the classic TV theme tune for Hawaii Five-0.

Cambridgeshire Music received more than 60 video and audio recordings from 50 different musicians across Cambridgeshire and further afield – including one of Cambridgeshire Music’s former students who’s now a session drummer in Los Angeles!

Instruments ranged from saxophones and flutes to cellos and drum kits – as well as some interesting implements from the kitchen cupboard!

Cambridgeshire Music’s Mark Aldous, who arranged the piece, said: “Our first Online Orchestra was a bit of an experiment and a means to keep our musicians engaged with their music making in these strange times. It was a joy to receive so many contributions and a real privilege to piece all of the bits together and to bring all of these musicians from different backgrounds and abilities together in the same space – albeit a virtual space. We’re delighted with the energy and enthusiasm that the participants have brought to the project and can’t wait to get cracking on the next one!.”

Cambridgeshire Music will be unveiling the next Online Orchestra challenge very soon…
