[Hoot!] – Orchestra gets first canine conductor

The prestigious London Philharmonic Orchestra has hired its first canine conductor, putting an end to criticisms of a lack of animal representation at the top level of classical music.

‘Hopefully this will pave the way for more animals to succeed in the performing arts’.

Following this news, the Royal Shakespeare Company announced that a cow would be playing the role of Hamlet, in the forthcoming production of Hamlet.
