Three-Year-Old Drummer Wows The Audience As He Leads An Orchestra Filled With Adult Musicians

Date October 15, 2018 16:59

At the age of three, most of us were out on the playground or running around somewhere, just being kids. We were definitely not thinking of leading an orchestra, were we? Three-year-old Russian drummer, Lyonya Shilovsky, is definitely not as easily satisfied as we were. He preferred to lead an orchestra of adult musicians through Offenbach’s Can-Can. It was genius.

A five-minute video clip was shared on YouTube showing Lyonya as he played the drums and led the orchestra. The video clip has had over seven million views and over a thousand comments. People could not believe how talented the little chap is.

Highlight Of The Footage

Lyonya, a brilliant and confident young drummer, walked up the stage and took his seat in front of the drumset. Then, he started playing and the orchestra followed his lead. Some minutes into the video, one of his drumsticks is dropped. Lyonya was not shaken by this and, after getting his stick back, he continued to play his drums as beautifully, like nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

This young lad from Novosibirsk performed without any music sheet in front of him. He had memorized all the crescendos and diminuendos, and then delivered them perfectly. After leading the orchestra, Lyonya went ahead and gave a solo performance of his own. Judging from the look on his face when he was done, it was obvious he didn’t want it to be over. We know we didn’t.

People's Reaction To The Performance

After the performance, the whole room was awed and applauded the brilliant drummer. The older musicians all looked at him with admiration and couldn’t stop clapping, either. He was then handed a bouquet before leaving the room.

He is such a young genius and we are not the only ones who think so. People left comments saying how incredibly good the boy is at such a young age.

At that age, we can only wonder if he will even be able to remember this performance later in life - without the help of this video, that is. We sure hope he continues practising his passion.
