A video showing a 3-year-old boy playing the drums is blowing viewers’ minds worldwide. There are plenty of videos online of youngsters playing drums, but not one where the boy is leading a full 65-piece orchestra in front of a live audience.
The boy appeared on the talent show ‘Minute of Fame,’ which has gone viral since then. Audiences worldwide can’t believe their eyes when they see this adorable boy in action.
The cute toddler is brought to the stage by his dad, who sits next to him through the performance. After the conductor explains what is about to happen, they all start playing.
They perform Jacques Offenbach’s ‘Orpheus in the Underworld,’ also known as ‘The Can-Can.’ The boy doesn’t have a single sheet of music in front of him; he memorized the whole thing himself.
He starts playing and flawlessly executes the crescendos, diminuendos, and accompanying rhythms. All goes perfectly well, but then disaster strikes. He loses grip for a split second and drops his drumstick on the floor.
The boy casually bends down, picks it up, and continues. Striking the exact note the orchestra is busy with at that point in the video. He plays, turns around, and looks at the conductor without looking at the drums or skipping a beat.
Viewers are mesmerized by the performance. How such a young boy can master this skill and have the confidence to perform in front of so many people is beyond most people’s comprehension.
