Sounds delicious: Meet Austria's 'Vegetable Orchestra', February 10

10 Feb 2014

Fresh veggies appear in Caesar salads or stews, but have you ever seen vegetables star in a concert? Visual artists and musicians have found a way to do just that through the Vegetable Orchestra, founded in 1998 in Vienna, Austria. “The fresher the produce, the better the sound," as the band saying goes. Preparing for a concert is a tough work, however, with artists taking more than six hours to prepare and drill the vegetables. The scraps from the finished products are not wasted: musicians make soup backstage during the concert. After the show, the Vegetable Orchestra always shares the dish with the audience.
