Less than 58% of the population was on some kind of government assistance? No, I guess that would just be a provincial record.

the world's largest orchestra
from the Vancouver Sun

at the B.C. Place Stadium a total of 6,452 students performed Beethoven's Ode to Joy, conducted by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's musical director Bramwell Tovey, for 9 minutes and 44 seconds. The previous record was set in 1998 by a crew of 3,503 musicians at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England. Their performance lasted seven minutes, 42 seconds and was conducted by Tovey's friend Simon Rattle .. it may take the Guinness Book of Records about six weeks to confirm the record. There was an official time keeper and an auditor from KPMG to ensure the record was broken. A tape and photographs will be sent to Guinness.
