Ice orchestra makes cool music

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Musicians have been making the most of chilly weather in northern Italy, by putting on a concert with a difference.

High up in the mountains, a giant igloo is home to musicians playing instruments made of ice as part of a special festival.

The man behind the idea, musician Terje Isungset, says it's pretty tricky to find the right ice for the instruments, but it's worth the effort as no two concerts ever sound the same.
