To mark the start of the Nice Jazz Off festival and celebrate the Fête de la Musique, why not join in this record breaking attempt in Nice?
Calling all Niçoises and Niçois – if you fancy seeing your name in the 2015 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, get yourself along to the Promenade du Paillon in Nice on Saturday, 21st June.
The Ville de Nice is attempting to create the world’s largest human saxophone, and you can be part of this record-breaking challenge. The event coincides with the annual Fête de la Musique, and also the opening concert in the Nice Jazz Off festival.
The event also serves to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Antoine-Joseph “Adolphe” Sax in 1814. He invented the saxophone, a key instrument in the world of jazz, and also the emblem of the 2014 Nice Jazz Festival.
The challenge will be overseen by an official of the Guinness World Records, and the Mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, and will take place on the Miroir d’Eau in the Promenade du Paillon (just adjacent to Place Masséna).
You are encouraged to bring as many friends and family with you, and promote the event in your circles, both on and offline. You will also need to pre-register for the event, to give organisers an idea as to the numbers that they can expect.
So, come along on Saturday, 21st June at 5:30pm and take part in this great musical and human adventure — break a record, enjoy some music, and celebrate summer! See you there!
