Dog makes unexpected appearance with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra

Someone’s pet was drawn to an outdoor concert by the Vienna Chamber Orchestra in Turkey and joined the orchestra on stage during its performance of Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony.

The dog didn’t steal the show, but it did seem to steal some hearts. The crowd responded with laughter at first, then applause as the pooch made itself comfortable at the feet of the first violinist.

Turkish pianist Fazil Say tweeted a short video clip from the orchestra’s June 20 performance in the ancient city of Ephesus, according to UPI.

The retriever calmly wandered on stage during the first movement, slowly walked to the side of the first violinist, and — after receiving a spontaneous round of applause — laid down at his feet, staring out into the crowd.

Conductor Ola Rudner called the unexpected moment the “cutest moment in classical music.”
