Between the Notes have worked on a wide range of projects internationally, as well as projects closer to home, such as the BBC Proms.
Individual members have worked with leading orchestras, such as the London Philharmonic, and have recorded with bands such as Radiohead and Pulp.
Matthew Barley, the ensemble's artistic director, said: "This is a dream project for Between the Notes.
"We can't wait to work with a whole community in their village and would love as many people as possible from Melbourn to get involved."
Investors in Music workshops will be held at Melbourn Village College and All Saints Church, Melbourn, from November 26-29.
