Orchestra Hires Dogs To Sing Authentic Version Of Leopold Mozart’s “Hunting Symphony.”

Talented dogs performed on stage with an orchestra.

A performance by the Danish Chamber Orchestra called for a group of very special musicians. In order to recreate the “Hunting Symphony” by Leopold Mozart (father of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart), they would need a few barking dogs. So, orchestra members were joined by a trio of four-legged performers who could speak on command: Cookie, Sophus, and Sica. Don’t worry: the pooches were compensated for their time and talent. Footage of the concert shows the dogs receiving plenty of treats!

Andreas Vetö, CEO of the Danish Chamber Orchestra, explained to Euronews that the canines were slotted to perform in the third movement of the symphony. CNN tells us that the composer had written the piece to include the sound of real barking dogs.
