Look at these dancing elephants!
These two pachyderms really love violin!
We all know that animals love music. You remember this farmer calling his cows playing trombone? Well I have here another example: Viola (45) and Kelly (44) dance to the sound of US violinist Eleanor Bartsch. Awesome!
The Youtube video description says it all:
Me warming up for my performance of the Bach Concerto for Two Violins with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra at the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, WI. I decided to go outside and play a bit for Kelly and Viola, 44 and 45 year-old elephants that have lived together for most of their lives. I found out that elephants REALLY like Bach…
Elephants love the sound of the violin, in particular if it is played by a professional musician. Or perhaps the two museum’s Indian elephants just have a soft spot for Bach and his Concerto for two violins in D minor.
Do you know any other animals dancing to the sound of violin?
