One State One Score


During the pandemic, the North Carolina Symphony invited citizens across North Carolina to contribute to a special performance of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” A remarkable 1,415 people shared their creativity—playing instruments, singing, dancing, and responding to the music with art. More than 30 types of instruments were performed, ranging from the traditional, to hammered dulcimers, to cowbells, to nose-whistle! Submissions came from counties from the mountains to the coast, from North Carolinians of all ages, from school classrooms, and from Symphony musicians and staff.

Navigation Panel

These buttons can be labeled for any set of videos we want patrons to jump to, such as “VIEW EDUCATION VIDEOS” or “VIEW PRE-CONCERT TALKS.” For this demo, they jump to each of the four Video Series styles.1

Video Series 1: Playlist

This method of guiding the user to a series of videos could be headed by information about the series & its sponsor(s). The embedded video is a playlist, so the end of each video will be cue up the next (or the next will play automatically).

Video Series 2: List

Best for a series with fewer videos or a high profile, the option below can have not only a description above the videos, but also a description &/or sponsor info, links, etc. next to each video.

About the Series

Through our Meet the Instruments series, sponsored by MetLife Foundation and Puffin Foundation West, Ltd., students will get to know the many instruments that make up a symphony orchestra—as well as the North Carolina Symphony musicians who play them!

Meet the Instruments is created especially for elementary school students, but audiences of all ages are likely to discover new things about the instruments of the orchestra!

North Carolina Symphony Principal Trombone John Ilika shows off his favorite instrument—how to play it, why he loves it, and why a “buzz” is essential to the sound!

North Carolina Symphony violinist So Yun Kim shows off her favorite instrument—how to play it, why she loves it, and why each violin is as unique as the person who plays it!

North Carolina Symphony Principal Timpani Colin Hartnett shows off his instrument—how to play it, why he loves it, and even… how much it weighs!

Sponsor/Sales Information

Below is an example of a block that provides sponsor visibility. Something similar to this could be placed with any of the display options on this page; for a “featured video” attached to an upcoming event (a pre-concert talk, holiday intro, etc.), this spece could be used for concert/series sponsors, BUY links for events, &/or links to event pages.


Video Series 3: Gallery

This embedded gallery brings together a set of videos & the animation is responsive to encourage engagement. Because there is not a place to describe each video individually, it might be best to have a description of the series here.


Video Series 4: Individual Blocks

This could be used for either a series of videos or a variety of videos or playlists. There’s space under each for brief info & a button or other link if we want visitors to proceed to another page. This space could be a general statement about what kind of videos we create.
