An elephant never forgets how to play the piano

If only Saint-Saens had seen this. Carnival of the Animals could have been so much more LITERAL.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.

  1. I just hope the keys aren’t made of ivory.

  2. What a cute elephant! He definitely enjoyed himself! To that previous statement from Tom Sharpe, I do hope its not made of Ivory. Otherwise, Peter, the Elephants may not want to play with that piano again. http://www.adventus.com/

  3. This elephant is a great character! It seems genuinely amused by this opportunity to play the piano, and also to investigate the pianist with its trunk! I find it so amusing that animals can appreciate music like this. I mean, there’s no real evidence that the elephant likes it, but he just seems contented to press the keys and generally muck about. One has to wonder to what extent an elephant could actually understand melody.

    Maybe there should be some behavioural studies on elephants exposed to music – I think the findings would be most interesting.
