She Wanted To Practice Violin Before The Show, And What These Elephants Do In Response

Everybody loves music and the emotions it evokes in us, but did you know that animals love music too and are believed to have similar emotional reactions to it, just as humans do? Music can touch the core of our heart, and apparently an animal’s heart too, and this video proves it.

Before playing for a massive audience at the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra at the Circus World Museum, Eleanor Bartsch decided to practice outside. She is a talented violinist who was preparing for her big performance, but she had another reason for practicing outside as well. Before going all out on the show she wanted a special audience to have their own private show outside, and this was a non-paying audience that she felt deserved something special. Eleanor readied her strings and began to play a bit of Bach in front of two elephants, Kelly and Viola. These two elephants have lived together all their life, and it seems like they like similar things as well.

Perhaps Eleanor had heard about how elephants have such positive reactions to music and she wanted to see for herself. Or maybe she is simply an elephant lover who wanted to see the elephants’ reaction to her music. I imagine it could be even more rewarding than a standing ovation.

Watch these elephants’ reaction to Eleanor’s violin performance. This will no doubt bring a smile to your face. What did you think about this video? Let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
