Al Hosn Festival: London Vegetable Orchestra Arab World Premiere
The London Vegetable Orchestra (LVO) is the UK’s only ensemble that literally offers audiences ‘home-grown’ entertainment. As the group’s name suggests, the instruments are made out of hand-crafted local produce, and they sound as incredible as they look.
The orchestra features a mouthwatering brass section of courgettes, squash, peppers and butternut that accompanies a soaring wind line-up of carrot recorders made by recorder-making superstar Tim Cranmore. The group’s repertoire includes classics from all genres with a fresh twist, such as In the food, Neil Diamond’s Swede Caroline and of course the Ben E. King hit Stand by Pea! This dynamic ensemble will perform at the Abu Dhabi Children’s Library and around Al Hosn Plaza, helping audiences appreciate the ‘roots’ of classical and contemporary music.
** Event is free and open to the public.
