World Record Attempt for Most Vocal Solos in a Song – Musical Intervention

Musical Intervention, in partnership with Make Music New Haven, Arts Council of Greater New Haven, International Make Music Day and The New Haven Parking Authority will host an attempt to break a record for most vocal solos in a song.

Musical Intervention is inviting at least 400 people to have their voices recorded singing a small section of Lean On me.

The current world record is 365 voices in one song. We will attempt to beat this record on top of the Temple Street Garage.

Registration starts at 4pm on the 9th floor of the Temple Street Garage. The World Record Attempt will start at 6pm and last for about an hour. All participants are asked to remain on the 10th floor during the attempt.

After the record attempt we will celebrate with live music and games.

This event is a family friendly drug and alcohol free event.

::::: How its gonna be done :::::

There will be three VERY long rows of people lined side by side.
A microphone and video camera will go down the line where each person will sing part of the song “Lean On Me.” It will be a slightly slower and extended version of the song.
