This is probably the WORST moment a musician could sneeze…

orchestra sneeze

The Arctic Philharmonic were doing a high-pressure recording, and someone sneezed. Hilarity ensued.

When orchestras make recordings, it’s a stressful time. The slightest mistakes cause delays, which cost money, and embarrassment. But when this double bassist had an involuntary physical reaction when the red light was on, his colleagues didn’t seem to mind.

This is lovely and hilarious:

It's not the first time a sneeze has caused musical consternation in a high-pressure situation: cast your minds back to the infamous Tiptree Sneeze from a few years ago.
