While Eleanor Bartsch was waiting to perform at the "Bach Concerto for Two Violins" with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra in Baraboo, Wisconsin, she thought she'd warm up outside for two elephants. Little did she know that they would give their full attention to her playing Bach!
Kelly and Viola are 44 and 45 year-old elephants who have lived together nearly all of their lives. It's clear to see in the video that they're the best of friends who never leave each other's side.
A study showed that elephants in captivity may be soothed by classical music due to the stress of being restricted. It is our hope that these majestic creatures truly do find comfort when listening to music.
Watch the video below to see these amazing elephants listen to the violin!
