So I didn’t grow up to play music with the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. That’s what I said, “vegetable.”
This video starts slowly, as the musicians choose their “instruments” at the market and then prepare them for playing. A carrot becomes a recorder, eggplants become clappers, a leek is a violin, and squash become percussion instruments. It’s funny to see how creative they were.
Go with it to the end as the group plays in concert. Some of it is kind of catchy, some of the “music” sounds like our bedroom at night after a meal of beans!
Is that a fresh sound, or what?
I wonder if they started this playing music with vegetables in an attempt to save money on musical instruments? With the price of fresh vegetables these days, those aren’t bargain priced instruments.
My husband, Eric, said he heard they were going to start a Vienna Seafood Orchestra until they found out that you can’t tune a fish.
Ba dump bump.
