Aloha to Cambridgeshire's young musicians as council's music education hub launches virtual school orchestra
Cambridgeshire County Council is looking for budding musicians to help spread joy and sunshine as part of its virtual school orchestra.
If you fancy making your musical mark on the world from your own home, why not join Cambridgeshire’s online school orchestra?
In the first of a series of online initiatives, Cambridgeshire Music – the county’s music education hub – is inviting the county’s budding musicians to contribute to a virtual performance of the theme tune from the US TV classic, Hawaii-5-0!
Jog your memory of the happy vibes here. Surfboards and shorts at the ready!
This invitation is open to everyone – regardless of ability, instrument or location. You don’t need to be an expert. Simply download your part and guidance sheet from the following Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tvder7jzbnmjfia/AACCWTlhRTEHZBw2Az2C4zX7a?dl=0 and follow the instructions.
The Dropbox offers a range of parts to suit various instruments including flute, saxophone, drums, viola, violin, trumpet and trombone - in most cases there is more than one option to choose from.
“This isn’t about being a musical wizard, it’s really all about giving it a go and having fun,” said Mark Aldous, who arranged the music for this online challenge. “We are really looking forward to seeing and piecing together your contributions.”
You can send a video file (mp4) or an audio file (mp3) via a WeTransfer link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, if you providing a video clip, you are giving your permission for tCambridgeshire Music to edit and use your contribution in the final performance.
Who knows, you could be famous.
The closing date for submissions is this Friday, (April 24), and the final masterpiece will be available from Monday (April 27).
