Help with Guinness World Record
Canadian Showtime Chorus helps set a NEW Guinness World Record for the Largest Singing Lesson!
Members of Canadian Showtime Chorus were delighted to participate in the achievement of a new Guinness World Record set on Oct. 24, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. The record-setting event coincided with the 63rd annual Sweet Adelines International Convention and Competition held at the Sommet Center in Nashville, TN.
Music professional and past Sweet Adelines International Quartet Champion Peggy Gram led the lesson by demonstrating inspiring techniques for integrating the voice into the art form. The venue was filled with immense sound as 6,651 singers practiced the demonstrated techniques and sang simultaneously for the duration of the 10-minute lesson.
Guinness World Records official adjudicator Danny Girton, Jr. presided over the certificate ceremony to validate the record and confirmed that the achievement met the criteria set forth by the organization. 'We welcome Sweet Adelines International into the Guinness World Records family for its inspirational and fun achievement', said Girton, Jr. while presenting the award.
Canadian Showtime Chorus was pleased to represent Lake Ontario Region#16 at this International competition and placed 23rd!
