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.

Priory Fields have been awarded a music mark for 2018 - 2019.
