Musical Meditations

Musical Meditations

with the North Carolina Symphony

The North Carolina Symphony has partnered with North Carolina State Parks and the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources to create a series of videos intended to be a meditation tool. The video features an excerpt from a classical music composition, as well as footage from some of our state parks.
