Imagine sitting in a concert hall, the orchestra comes on stage, lights dim, and the sounds of a… celery root accompanied by a pumpkin and onion fills the room. The Vegetable Orchestra performs on instruments made from vegetables — that’s exactly right: eat and listen to your veggies! July 31st is Uncommon Musical Instrument day, so we're celebrating all the unusual — but nonetheless pleasing — instruments: not just vegetables, but Wagner tubas, didgeridoos, ocarinas, and more. Enjoy this playlist as we toast to the instruments that challenge us to think outside the box!
