Virtual Choir Update
Thank you to everyone who sent videos for the Virtual Choir! It is almost ready to share! I am finishing a few last details and will send you a link to the Virtual Vertical Concert in the next few days. This screenshot from the video of "My Very Own" will give you a little preview of what a 48-person Virtual Choir looks like:
Weekly Feature: Musical Records
This week we highlight a different category of random musical records each day - staring with "The Largest ...."
The largest triangle ensemble consists of 1,521 people, and was achieved by students of The Music Man Project at an event organized by David Stanley in London, United Kingdom, on October 15, 2017.
Each student had their own ukulele and watched the single instructor, Ric Cho, on stage or from one of the 5 screens set up streaming live around the venue. Ric taught them how to hold the instrument, a few strumming techniques and finished with a splendid rendition of "Baby Shark," with all participants playing along.
And finally, the largest human image of a musical instrument was formed by 1,660 people creating the shape of a saxophone in the Promenade du Paillon in Nice, France, on 21 June 2014.
