The Guinness Book of Records for the world’s largest orchestra has been broken.

At that time, 12,000 performers aged 12 to 77 gathered in one place in the capital of Caracas to play Tchaikovsky’s ‘Slavic March’, and 260 judges judged that 8573 of them participated effectively. This is more than the previous Guinness record of 8097 simultaneous performances in Russia in 2019.
