Crowd cheers as dog interrupts classical music performance

A dog with a penchant for classical music casually sauntered on stage during an outdoor orchestra performance in Turkey — to the delight of audience members.

In the clip, posted to Twitter by Pianist Fazil Say, the pup struts past several musicians playing in the Vienna Chamber Orchestra in Ephesus on June 20.
