The song that best symbolises Cumbria – as picked by you – will be covered by an 80-piece BBC orchestra.

BBC Radio Cumbria listeners can call, text, tweet or email their nominations for the “anthem of Cumbria”.

The winning track will be picked by BBC Radio Cumbria presenter Mike Zeller before being sent to the 80-piece BBC Philharmonic.

The performers will have just two weeks to write, rehearse and perform the tune, with each musician recording their individual part from their own home.

It means that Cumbrians' choice could be rendered into an impressive piece of music that will become part of the local

music scene for many years to come.

Presenter Mike Zeller said: “I’m really excited to see the nominations people come up with: Cumbria is chock full of talented people and we’ve produced some remarkable musicians."

The chosen tune will be played on the Breakfast Show and will be added to the ‘Great Northern Playlist’, made up of the tracks picked from each of the 10 BBC Local Radio areas in the North.
