Hot on the heels of the success of Cambridgeshire Music’s first Online Orchestra, we’re delighted to bring you news of the second Online Orchestra challenge!

For the first challenge, Cambridgeshire Music transported everyone to the sunny beaches of Hawaii with a heart-warming performance of the classic theme tune – Hawaii Five-0. Almost 6,000 people watched the YouTube premiere, which brought together 50 performers from across Cambridgeshire and beyond.

For the second challenge, musicians across Cambridgeshire and beyond are invited to sunnier climes once again – by playing their part in the popular dance tune ‘La Bamba’, all the way from sunny  Mexico!!!

La Bamba is a fun-filled Latin American 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!

This is your chance to get into the Mexican groove with musicians young and old from across the county! You could even don a sombrero and a poncho for some extra on-screen fun when you record your part!

Visit Cambridgeshire Music's website here for more details about how to get involved (plus some tips for perfecting your performance from Cambridgeshire Music's talented teachers)…
