Vienna Vegetable Orchestra

Established in 1998, the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra is a group of 11 musicians (plus 1 sound technician and 1 video artist) who put on concerts using instruments made of vegetables. My favorite vegetable was the recorder made from a carrot and a trumpet-like instrument concocted from a cucumber, a bell pepper and a piece of carrot (see the photo at left).

Watch the video below that shows how the musicians create instruments from vegetables, and what one of their concerts is like. Apparently at the end of every concert, the audience is served a soup made of the parts of the vegetables that got carved out when the instruments were made.
