A Dog Walked Onstage During An Orchestra Concert And Made Itself Nice And Comfortable

Ah, the symphony. A place for intellectuals and elites alike to gather and take in the arts.

Oh, and dogs. Dogs are also apparently super into orchestra concerts, too. Proof? This dog that strolled onstage during a Vienna Chamber Concert on June 27 and made itself riiiight at home in front of the first violin.

Cutest moment in classical music. 😍😍😍Vienna Chamber Orchestra – Ola Rudner, Conductor – Fazıl Say, Piano – Ephesus,… https://t.co/O3nev6hBtf

The orchestra was playing at the International İzmir Festival in Ephesus, Turkey.

The orchestra was working its way through a Felix Mendelssohn tune when the dog entered stage left, because who doesn’t like Mendelssohn?

It then paused for a few seconds as the audience roared with laughter.

And then it did something only a dog could get away with at a concert — it lay the hell down.

Several of the Very Serious Musicians couldn’t help but smile as the doggo got itself comfortable.


I don’t know what we did to deserve this — or any — dog, but honestly, every orchestra performance needs a surprise dog cameo in the future.

Thank you, dogs.
