The Vegetable Orchestra

from Vienna

26 August 2023


Jubilee Square View on Google Maps ›

Have you ever seen an orchestra performing on vegetables?

The Vegetable Orchestra was founded in Vienna, Austria, in 1998 and has played more than 300 concerts so far.

This unusual orchestra performs with instruments made from fresh vegetables, which have to be created anew for each concert and rehearsal. The use of vegetable instruments changes slightly each time, creating a unique universe of sound that cannot be achieved with traditional instruments. There are no musical boundaries for The Vegetable Orchestra, all music styles fuse here – contemporary music, House tracks, Electronic, Free Jazz, Dub and more.

A concert of The Vegetable Orchestra appeals to all the senses – after a short time, a wonderful smell of vegetables fills the air. At the end of the concert, the audience is offered fresh vegetable soup to enjoy together, for free.
