Staying Connected

Music Monday | Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Entitled “From us, for you” Netherlands’ Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest came together to perform a virtual rendition of Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’.

The Dutch orchestra filmed the finale of Beethoven’s symphony ‘Ode to Joy’ with 19 musicians recording their individual parts on their respective instruments to a click track. Each part was then added to an audio mix along with an archival recording of the final choir segment.

Virtual Tour Tuesday | Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park

Explore Nahuku, known as the Thurston Lava Tube, a 500-year-old lava cave located at an altitude of 3,900 ft on Kilauea Crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Lava caves like this are formed when a river of lava gradually builds solid walls and a ceiling. When the lava flow stops and the last of it passes downhill, a cave is formed.

From the North American trails in Canada to the Yonaguni Monument underwater in Japan, plop on your couch and travel the pages. We encourage you to try an e-book, audiobook, or order online from your local bookstore!
