The amazing moment 3-year-old Russian drummer leads orchestra of adult musicians through Offenbach’s Can-Can.
A three-year-old boy from Russia is taking the internet by storm with his incredible drumming ability!
Lyonya Shilovsky from Novosibirsk made his way into the spotlight earlier this year when he appeared on the Russian talent show Minute of Fame, and this video now is taking the internet by storm!
The child bellow is leading an orchestra of adult musicians through a rousing section of Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, commonly known as the Can-Can.
Without any paper in front, he memorizes all the crescendos, diminuendos and accompanying rhythms.
And as cherry on the top, he brings everything to an end with a mighty drum roll!
But like a real champ, he goes on to perform a solo encore in order to satisfy the fans.
The adult musicians were looking at him in amazement as he bashes the drums in a trance-like state.
Finally, after giving incredible drum session, Lyonya stands up to receive a bouquet of flowers and take a well-earned bow.
The impressive performance took place at the New State Concert Hall of Arnold Katz in Novosibirsk.
Many viewers have praised Lyonya’s musical talent, deeming it ‘astonishing’.
One fan said something that made so much sense: ‘Ha! So cute! Love the look at the end! He wanted to play all night!’
