Arts participation: how many carolers does it take to break a Guinness record?

Answer: 9101.

In another twist on the participatory arts theme, the Boston Pops is hoping to break the Guinness World Record for “the most carolers in one place.” Singers are invited to Christian Science Plaza in Boston on Saturday for some holiday cheer and hopefully some history-making. In order to break the record, more than 9100 carolers must sing continuously for 15 minutes.

With arts participation on the rise—as the Getting in on the Act study reports—maybe this is the year they’ll do it?
