Last week, KUSC (and KDFC, our sister station in Northern California) kicked off the #MakeSomeJoy challenge, asking listeners to upload videos of themselves performing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy using crafty homemade instruments to Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #MakeSomeJoy #KUSC #KDFC. By the way, there’s still time to join the fun. In the meantime, enjoy some of our favorites so far.
Without further ado, Jennifer Miller’s Lo-fi keyboard entry for our #MakeSomeJoy Challenge. Head to KUSC.org to learn how YOU can make some joy!

Hi KUSC. I've been a listener since Carl Princey days when you were KFAC. You've traveled with me my entire adult like and I am very grateful. Enjoy my bit of a video. #MakeSomeJoy #KUSC #KDFC

@classicalkusc is asking people to spread joy from home while we’re social isolating. Here is main theme “Ode to Joy” from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. I want to thank you KUSC for your wonderful music programs! I listen to you often and with great pleasure! From Romania 🇷🇴 with “joy” and love! 😊 #MakeSomeJoy #KUSC #KDFC #odetojoy #beethoven
Keep your eyes peeled. We’ll keep updating this blog with our favorites and be sure to follow along on Facebook and Instagram.
