Sweet Adelines Prepares to Set a Guinness World Record


Sweet Adelines International will soon give Nashville something to sing about as thousands of a cappella vocalists prepare to set the Guinness World Record for Largest Singing Lesson on Saturday, October 24 at 7 p.m. in the Sommet Center. Sweet Adelines members are women who excel in singing the unique musical art form of barbershop harmony.

In accordance with Guinness World Records guidelines, music professional and past International Quartet Champion Peggy Gram will lead the Largest Singing Lesson by demonstrating inspiring techniques for integrating the voice into the art form. The venue will be filled with immense sound as more than 7,000 singers are expected to practice the techniques and sing simultaneously for the duration of the lesson.

An on-site Guinness World Records official adjudicator, Danny Girton, will be present to witness the attempt and to validate the achievement, which will culminate in a certificate presentation if the endeavor is successful.
