An official from Guinness World Records witnessed the event that brought together 4,645 children aged under 18 at a stadium in central Changhua county, the county government said.

The performance was 30 seconds longer than the required minimum of five minutes, it said.

"Creating a world record is not our goal. The event is to review a music education promotion programme for schoolchildren launched seven years ago," Chang Chueh-fen, a county official, told AFP.

The previous world record was set in 1925 in London when 4,000 violinists performed.
