Every person in the orchestra has a seating spot. The orchestra has 3 sections, the front, middle, and rear. The strings and harp are in front, the woodwinds go in the middle rows and the brass horns and percussion are in the rear which is also the highest level of the stage.
At the concert, they played 3 pieces, Overture To The Italian Girl In Algiers by Rossini, Piano Concerto No.1 by Liszt and Symphony No. 6 by Shostakovich. My favorite part of the concert was the fourth movement of Symphony No. 6. At the end of the piece, all the instruments in the orchestra played together and made beautiful music.
The Piano Concerto featured a pianist Petor Toth. He is a Hungarian pianist and a winner of numerous international piano competitions, including the Franz Liszt piano competition. When Mr. Toth played, his hands moved so fast that they looked blurry!
Mrs. Yollis found an interactive orchestra site where you can learn and listen to instruments! Here is a link!
