An estimated 11,000 Santa Clarita Valley sixth- and seventh-graders, local educators, business people, dignitaries, residents and College of the Canyons students converged on COC’s Cougar Stadium Friday morning, May 18, in an apparently successful attempt to set new Guinness World Records for the largest percussion ensemble and the largest drum ensemble. Guinness certification was pending at post time.

John Densmore, formerly of The Doors, marvels at the 7,500 kids below on the Cougar Stadium field.

It was a remarkable experience few of us have ever known, much less had a chance to share with so many of our SCV family members, friends and neighbors.

Get all the details in the preview and day-of stories, and enjoy the photos below.
