    Instruments of a Philharmonic orchestra, their position and how this contributes and or hinders the overall acoustics sound of the score. I chose this topic because I have heard the philharmonic orchestra many times before at ballets over the years. Even though I had heard them I never knew what the orchestra was composed of and how they made an impact on the mood or atmosphere of the room.
