Bach gets to elephants, too

Violinist Eleanor Bartsch was warming up for an outdoor performance of Bach’s Concerto in D Minor when she noticed that two elephants in an enclosure at the adjacent Circus World Museum were getting into the spirit of things.  She put up this video on her YouTube channel.

How cute is that?  I suppose they may have been used to ‘dancing’ to the music of circus orchestras, but even so, I suspect Bach himself would have found that funny.



  1. I happened to be clicking the channels the other day and happened upon John Huston's "The Bible" just at the Noah's Ark portion. Noah was playing a flute of some sort and the elephants were doing the same thing as these. I figgered them for trained to it but perhaps elephants just like to boogey-woogey with the jams.
