Imagine listening to music and then eating the instruments! In Vienna, Austria, there’s an orchestra that does exactly that. The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra uses fresh vegetables to make music. Yes, you read that right – vegetables!
The story begins in 1998 when a group of friends decided to fill their time at a student festival in a very unusual way. They made instruments out of vegetables they were using to make soup and performed music with them. This idea was so unique that it marked the beginning of something special.
Over the years, this group has traveled the world, from London to Shanghai, making music with vegetables. They create instruments like carrot flutes, pumpkin drums, and pepper horns. Every performance ends with the musicians making soup from the vegetables and sharing it with their audience.
This orchestra isn’t just about music; it’s an experience. The audience can smell the fresh vegetables, see the artists play them, and finally taste the musical soup.
Check out the Vegetable Orchestra in the video below.
