Dogs are always entertaining even when they crash a performance of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra
#1.Dog Appears on Stage
Founded in 1946, the world famous Vienna Chamber Orchestra has a most respected reputation which is upheld every time they perform on stage. But a few evenings ago, while the musicians were executing Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony No.4 at the 31st International Izmir Festival in Ephesus, Turkey, the randomness of life threw a humorous curve ball into the solemn occasion.
The Golden Retriever came onto the stage to join the Vienna Chamber Orchestra
Out of nowhere came this random Golden Retriever that nonchalantly walked onto the outdoor stage, picked the best seat at the foot of the violinist, made itself extra comfortable and then quietly yawned. Many people in the audience gave the dog a few rounds of applause, perhaps acknowledging that even life’s most serious moments need some respite. Even the musicians couldn’t help but break into a smile, and Turkish pianist, Fazil Say called the canine caper “the cutest moment in classical music.”

#2. Musicians Can’t Help But Smile
The unidentified dog picked his resting place carefully, sniffing out one musician to another before settling for the best seat in the house in front a violinist. He then did what many people might not admit to but secretly yearn to do when trapped in some of life’s more serious moments; namely, lie down and yawn.
No one knew who owned the dog, but everyone attending the Vienna Chamber Orchestra performance wanted to shake its paw and say ‘hello’. Reminiscent of those endings to The Lone Ranger serial about not knowing the name of the masked man but wanting to thank him, those at the concert sought in vain to meet both the dog and its owner, but the animal’s identity remains a mystery.
Could it perhaps be another as yet unknown muse that appears when things are just too serious?
No one will ever know but a good time was certainly had by all.
