A Musical World Record in Frankfurt am Main

Music fills the air and a world record is set. Thousands of excited guests waited in anticipation for the official announcement that they had achieved a word record. 7,548 musicians came together to play in Frankfurt’s Commerzbank Arena where an official representative from the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed the event as the largest orchestra in the world. Musicians played together for more than five minutes, including excerpts from Dvorak and Beethoven. The previous record was held by Brisbane, Australia where 7,224 musicians played together – 324 fewer than in Frankfurt. Professionals and amateurs alike were welcome to join and show their appreciation for music and its power to connect people. The event is another great example of the Main Metropolis’s diversity.
