Antalya kids vie for world record in violin playing


Today’s Zaman runs an interesting story about a group of Antalya students who tried for the world record in group violin playing. The 500 students, aged 3 through 12, only started learning to play the violin six months ago.

I wonder what that sounded like, 500 violin beginners at the same time. Good luck to them with getting the record, although I think the Guinness Book is kind of becoming a parody of itself, what with all these groups trying to invent newer and more bizarre ways to get certified. Link
