4,300 Singers Gather in Russia

A choir of more than 4,335 people assembled on Sunday near St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia, to perform an hourlong concert of 14 songs in an effort to set the record for the world’s largest choir, The Associated Press reported. The event was one of many to observe the 310th anniversary of St. Petersburg and included singers of all ages, including professional and amateur choirs from the area. The effort to receive a distinction from “Guinness World Records” has a big challenge: According to the Guinness Web site, the largest choir performed on Jan. 30, 2011, in Chennai, India, where 121,440 people sang in unison for more than five minutes.
