An orchestra is a large instrumental group which tends to play classical music.
The orchestra is divided into different sections, each section containing instruments from the same musical family.
The sections are -
Strings, woodwind, brass & percussion.
There can be over 100 people playing their own instruments within an orchestra.
Orchestras are led by a conductor, their job is to direct the performance and keep all performers in time. The conductor will help to prepare an orchestra during rehearsals for a performance.
