World's largest viola ensemble performs in Porto shopping centre

Wednesday, 22 May 2013

More than 300 musicians gathered at a shopping centre in Porto, Portugal, on 19 May to break the world record for the largest ever viola ensemble. The number of players giving a ‘flashmob’ performance to shoppers has yet to be confirmed by Guinness World Records, but unofficial figures put the total at 353 – 32 more than the previous record of 321. Here is a selection of photos from the day, courtesy of the Portuguese Viola Association, which organised the event as part of its biennial conference.
