Cambridgeshire music have just launched their virtual orchestra project.
This opportunity is open to anyone regardless of age or ability. Participants can play the appropriate part for their instrument, adapt a part or make up their own to fit with the backing track. Read on to find out how to join in!
It’s time to get creative. Lay down pens and computers and take a break from school work (if allowed) over the holidays and help make the largest Cambridgeshire music ensemble. Cambridgeshire Music have been looking at how to keep us all connected and making music together over the coming weeks and are going to provide some projects to which you can all contribute at whatever level you are playing, on an instrument and make a large-scale online combined performance to be premiered for everyone to enjoy. The first piece they are going to do is Hawaii 5-0. Arranged by Mark Aldous.
You can find parts available for your instrument via this link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tvder7jzbnmjfia/AACCWTlhRTEHZBw2Az2C4zX7a?dl=0
Anyone can take part however far in their musical studies they have reached and feel free to adapt parts as required. So rope in your siblings, friends and family and let’s give our bit to the online music explosion that is out there.
You can send a video file (mp4) or an audio file (mp3) via a wetransfer link to email@example.com . Remember that if providing a video clip you are consenting for Cambridgeshire Music to edit and use in the final recording! Musicians at Cambridgeshire Music will join in and play and then combine all the files so that we can have everyone playing together in the final recorded performance. To help you keep in time they have provided a backing track that you can use available to download on the webpage link below. So if you fancy doing something a bit different in these strange times and putting your musical mark on the world join our virtual band and have some fun. Who knows where it might lead…
There is more information about this and other projects at Cambridgeshire Music
If you do join in please let me know, I would love to hear how you got on. I've printed off both the clarinet and violin parts so I can attempt to join in. Think I may need a little practise first though!! Please get in touch if any of you need any further help.
