835 Tuba players set new world record, playing “Silent Night”

I have NOT lost it. Read this – it was written by a man named Dale Lowe:

You have to give props to the people who picked the tuba as their school instrument.   I mean, getting it home to practice with should’ve been worth an extra credit in itself, right??!!

Plus, those kids were “all about the bass – – no treble” long before the rest of us.

A massive tuba ensemble has smashed a Guinness World Record in Kansas City – – 835 tuba players (between the ages of 11 and 86) performing “Silent Night” this past Friday . The previous record of 502 tuba players in California in 2007. (Ahem.  “Tuba-d for them…there record was broken.  Thanks…I’m here all week!)

While a few performed on a tenor version of the tuba, called a euphonium, the Guiness officials have declared it an official new world record.

And the rendition of this Christmas carol is surprisingly beautiful.   have a listen:

Did you sing along? I did!!!
