World Kazoo Record
The current record for the largest kazoo ensemble is 3861 players established in Australia.
On Monday night, in aid of Red Nose Day BBC Radio 3 attempted to beat this record during their concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
The evening featured the unrivalled BBC Concert Orchestra with guest performers including Julian Lloyd-Webber.  Sue Peerkins conducted two pieces and Basil Brush assisted Katie Derham with presenting the evening.
It was a wonderful evening and somewhat different from the usual Radio 3 concerts.

What a setting for an attempt on the world kazoo record

The Masters of the Kazooniverse tried valiantly to lead us in the attempt.

Scrutineers from Guinness World Records were there to count how many of us played for the whole of our two chosen pieces - The Ride of the Valkyries and The Dambusters' March..
But you will have to listen to Radio 3 at 7pm of Friday March 18 to find out how we got on..
