The Viennese Vegetable Orchestra



The sound of 90 pounds of finely tuned cucumbers, leeks, potatoes, radishes, peppers, aubergines and marrows entertained a German audience at a weekend concert by the Viennese Vegetable Orchestra. The nine-piece orchestra plays a range of original compositions on instruments constructed from vegetables--including a flute made from a carrot, a saxophone carved out of a cucumber and a pumpkin converted into a double bass. Along with commenting on the sound coming from the vegetables, concert goers commented on the raw vegetable aroma accompanying the melodies. Quite an interesting way to use your vegetables!
