This is the moment a mum manages to continue playing the piano despite the fact her adorable toddler has given his dad the slip and managed to climb onto the stage to demand attention while she is in the middle of a performance.
Mie Hirai’s 2-year-old son, Koutaro, joined her on stage whilst she was reciting Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s The Bells in Osaka, Japan on stage on 14th August.
In the video, Mie is reciting ‘The Bells’ after months of preparing for her performance when her son starts to make his way over to the stage after giving his dad the slip.
About 30 seconds into the performance little Koutaro appears on the stage and taking no notice of the audience he makes his way over to his mum who continues playing.
As the mum and son duo make eye contact Mie hits a deep note on the piano and continues to play.
Mie told Newsflash: “My son was supposed to be with my husband I was very surprised when he appeared on stage.”
Despite her son grabbing her and playing a few keys on the piano himself, Mie successfully finished the performance.
She stands up and smiles at her son before taking a bow and walking off stage with Koutaro following closely behind.
She said: “I have been preparing very hard for this performance but in a strange way it made me happy to have him on stage.”
She added:” Next year I want him to be the one playing and I’ll watch.”
Mie uploaded the clip to Twitter where it became an instant hit with Netizens, receiving 84,000 likes and 18,400 retweets.
