Violin world record broken in Taiwan


A group of 4,645 violinists broke the world record for the most number of violins played simultaneously.

Students aged between three and 18-years-old from over 170 schools played in unison for five minutes.

The previous record was set in London in 1925, when 4,000 violinists played together.
