Aloha! Cambridgeshire Music is delighted to unveil the very first performance of Cambridgeshire's Online Orchestra - in a specially arranged version of the classic TV theme tune for Hawaii Five-0.
 
We 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!."
