Have you ever wandered through the produce section at your local market and said to yourself, “Wow look at all these instruments!”
For the members of The Vegetable Orchestra, fresh vegetables provide endless musical possibility. And maybe after today, you will be looking at one more slice of the world with a little more creativity!
So, what exactly is The Vegetable Orchestra?
These musicians are creating fascinating music using only vegetables. It sounds incredible, and it really is!
The Vegetable Orchestra tells a story of possibility. We choose to find wonder and awe in the little things and to think outside the box. Perhaps playing vegetables as instruments doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, but it does remind us to look at what is possible out there in the world.
We can wait to “be inspired” by the world around us, or we can actively search for and be awed by our experiences, it’s really a matter of perspective.
