The Beethoven one is seriously impressive. Someone worked their ass off orchestrating that!


SoDakZak

Probably a semiconductor


r0manred

You’re on the wrong train.


SeVenMadRaBBits

Excuse me sir, this is a sub.


BobVilla287491543584

No, this is Patrick.


apostrophe_misuse

Is mayonnaise an instrument?


TheDeviantAndroid

Is horseradish an instrument?


NoZookeepergame1014

You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish.


TheDeviantAndroid

Thank you sir, the door is this way. All of reddit kindly asks you to never return.


n0tAb0t_aut

And whats the right train? How without a conductor?


Midtown2

Damn that’s Funny!


PeanutButterStew

Incredible arrangement, he was delighted.


JPRCR

They seem like really sweet and gentle guys that are loved and respected by their orchestras. This is really what next fucking level means


fartssmellgreat

Yeah I bet the asshole conductors don’t get as many birthday surprises


Tracker_Nivrig

This is actually insane. r/wholesome for sure


desiccatedmonkey

This has brought me to tears!! So bloody beautiful.


itanewdayshinebright

Ok, I am glad I am not the only one who got rather tearful!


anoop_pharevar

Same here! This was beautiful, and I hate birthdays!!


SrijanKarthik

This is an unimaginably amazing tribute. Among the best someone can get. The last conductor conducted his own tribute, it’s amazing! TwoSet should react to this.


bookangel1111

If you can conduct it slowly, you can conduct it quickly.


aselota

Was not expecting to like this at all, but I loved it. Heartwarming and kind and surprising all in one.


FinerStrings

That's my violin teacher in the 1st stand of the TSO prank.


SariSama

The best part of this that the conductor didn't know they are planning something. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wZCHFIplXE](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wZCHFIplXE) Personally i like [this surpise](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmkEQ2HrOAo), because you can see how important concert masters are (the guy with violin in the front row). You can see him directing that part of the concert while playing his part


KensieQ72

Being a concertmaster is a lot more work/pressure than I think people outside of an orchestra realize. I was one in high school, and I still get sweaty palmed nightmares about fucking up getting everyone to stand for the conductor or the few pieces I had to lead on... can’t imagine doing it at this level lol


Jetorix

Musicians are just the coolest people on this planet. I’m not one but I’ve always wanted to be.


itsJoelleScott

There’s no reason you can’t start now!! I played trumpet for a decade and just picked up violin at the ripe old age of 29!


Governing_Baddy

Never too late, my friend. I had my first cello lesson at age 36! :)


tiptop-765

Go you!!! I picked it back up at 31 after a 13 year break and was so humbled. Props to all you adult learners out there and keep going!


Governing_Baddy

Thank you! :)


Jewjitsu11b

Started violin at 37. So.. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Indeed it was!


zpoup

This is amazing, made me tear a bit


RosieBabyCheeks

I needed this. I can't believe how much I needed this. I was upset, angry, wound up too tight, but this video reminded me that everything is going to be okay. Bravo and thank you!


SeefoodGumbo

Now we need an orchestra to rickroll its conductor...


RealJohnnySilverhand

That Beethoven really touched me and that arrangement is truly amazing! Made my day Found the video: https://youtu.be/9Wqeug-XHKk


h0pe3

I miss seeing classical music live


UnknownSkies_YT

Same here!


Can-t-Even

Me three 😭


h0pe3

as much as I love rock music, there’s something about an entire orchestra filling a room gives me goosebumps every time!


Dgalliano

On my 17th bday I got to school late(farm kid) I checked in at the office then went to class. They were playing hangman. When I realized it was HAPPY BIRTHDAY I said it and the whole class started singing.


ThatMadStag

Now this is the kind of prank I want to see more of!


IsileliLaveaMusic

Happy Birthday Katherine, I love you.


SheepyBullet

3 minutes of non-stop smiling! Thank you!


lemony_melon

"Not quite my tempo."

AlvinArtDream

NeoToronto

I really, really miss going to see the TSO. My last visit was for their Halloween Haunt in 2019. Who knew what was coming?


tabicat1874

Beautiful


icywing54

In the same vein, [here is the low brass section pranking the whole orchestra](https://youtu.be/Oipg71dSem0)


danr2c2

Well played in Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet


KriegerZ16

This put a smile on my face for 3 minutes straight. Just beautiful.


nikitasenorita

That made my heart smile


PrettyChrissy1

This video is so heart warming and beautiful. Thank you for posting it. 😁


Frik_shun

Just to play these songs is impressive, then add in Happy Birthday throughout. Awesome. Just awesome.


Bliftify

Wow now that’s the Coincidence of the day today is my birthday so to see this is one weird coincidence


philisophicalpenguin

That second guy became a kid again. So great to see people when they are experiencing what they love.


SolitaireOG

This is super-duper heartwarming, wow. Needed this today <3


thecasualpunchline

I am crying?????


Lloi__X3

this really make my day :,D


contreasness

This might be the most heart warming thing I’ve seen


913Jango

This type of stuff needs to make a comeback. People are systematically being taught to appreciate the stupid things in this world and turn a blind eye to true art and talent. It is a wonderful token here.


SquishyDough

I loved the part where they combined Beethoven with Happy Birthday. The conductor became a little kid just enthused with the piece and how the orchestra was performing it. Here's the full clip if anyone wants it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wqeug-XHKk

Wholesome af


x3bla

Ngl I thought his hair was shining instead of the logo


Majikku

Exquisite 💯


Wimbleston

Huh, the birthday song is actually tolerable played by an orchestra instead of a out of tune group of people singing out of sync. Always hated that song, I've walked out of the room before cause people insisted on singing it.


Nerzhus

That's the proof that the maestro is not needed.


Majikku

"I just played some Mario Cart, just more proof that I don't need to adhere to traffic lights to drive with everyone else"


Nerzhus

Your argument makes no sense. So you have the road code book(music), you got taught how to drive(play the instrument), do you need someone next to you to drive on the road with other ppl? No.


peopleareslow

More proof that conductors are unnecessary. They're not conducting here and orchestra is still able to play just fine.


koreanpigeon

u could hear that the first orchestra wasn't in time at the end dumbass


Majikku

"I just played some Mario Cart, just more proof that I don't need to adhere to traffic lights to drive with everyone else"


Reddit5678912

Wow it really proves how pointless having a conductor is. They just mutinied the songs and killed it with out him


Majikku

Yea Fuck my friends. Fuck them for not having ever licked my ass with orchestration and string. /z for zing — where boomers show their true colors
