Unfortunately our attempt to set a new world record for the largest cup percussion ensemble has hit a major snag. When Barrie Music Festival began their planning for this attempt, the record was 350 people. Our goal was to break that record with 1000 people. But a group of Chinese students beat us to the punch with a new record of 2400 people. Sadly, our venue at Kempenfest cannot hold that many people, so the attempt to break that record would be futile. While this is a set-back for the Barrie Music Festival, they are not totally defeated. The group is planning something new for the fall. We’ll update you with those plans as they are developed.
