I have been uplifted by the many videos that have been shared on social media lately showing how people are making their own joy with others despite our physical distances. I wanted to share a few today.
This first one was brought to my attention in a blog post by @LarryFerlazzo:
Here are two young people who chose to give their elderly neighbor a concert:
The Rotterdam Philharmonic did this gorgeous recording, “From Us, For You” of “Ode to Joy.”
This particular video from the Roedean School in South Africa is beautiful to watch and hear.
I keep watching this one over and over again because I adore the pure joy in these boys as they play Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida.”
Here is an amazing mariachi concert by students on Twitter:

For a dose of absolutely adorable cuteness, you should listen to “Virus in a Tree.”
My daughters (Fenn 4, Bess 6) made a virus related song today. It’s called ‘Virus in The Tree’. It’s written from the perspective of the virus. They’re trying their best to process it all. 🌳 pic.twitter.com/27RuYeWkOo

And finally, for those of us looking for some humor, watch this clever and talented family perform the pandemic version of “One Day More” from Les Miserables. (Thanks to @jtrayers for sharing this on FB.)
