In 2016, Great Big Story visited with the wonderful Vegetable Orchestra, a group of talented musicians in Vienna, Austria who play biodegradable instruments that are made completely out of vegetables from local markets and make them into soup afterwards.
When Great Big Story visited with them again in 2020, the orchestra collectively performed an original composition entitled “Green Days” separately from their homes through video chat.
These musicians literally play freshly cut vegetables sourced from local markets. And who knew carrots, eggplants, red peppers, and other veggies could sound so good? This unique ensemble plays a piece they composed just for us, all from their own homes. It’s called “Green Days.”
