You know how it goes: you're on stage with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra playing Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4, First Movement, when all of a sudden the audience starts applauding. "They love me!" you think. "All those years of classical training, finally paying off!"
But nope: just a doggo.
The best part? The dog isn't shooed off stage! Instead, the real-life Beethoven sits freely and basks in the attention, under the baton of Ola Rudner at the IKSEV festival in Ephesus, Turkey.
Dear Symphony orchestras of the world: More dogs on stage!
