Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin Creates New Smoothing Playlist for Pets

Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin has announced the release of his own specially-curated symphonic playlist ... for pets

The Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin has this week announced the release of his own specially-curated symphonic playlist ... for pets.

Inspired by the conductor's recent visit to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the 34-hour, 326-classical works, playlist is available now on Apple Music and Spotify.

“I couldn’t resist the opportunity to blend my love of music with my love of animals ..." the 44-year-old superstar conductor has said.

"Seeing the way my own cats react to the music we play at home, and learning from the PSPCA the benefits of music in shelters, I wanted to do my part to make the experience for the loving animals at the shelter a little bit better,” he has said.

“A shelter is a very unnatural place for these animals to be residing for any length of time ... anything we can do to create a calmer space for them, putting them in a better state of mind, will help shorten their stay and ultimately find them their forever families," Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals coordinator, Kayla Dorney has said.
