Orchestra Seating: How to Identify Your Friends at the Fall Concert

Blair’s Fall Concert is Friday, November 17th. It is a great opportunity to see what your friends have been working hard on all semester. However, if you are unfamiliar with orchestra seating, trying to figure out where your friend is on stage can be difficult.

This is the general seating for Blair’s orchestra:


Mrs. Pagotto stands in front conducting the orchestra. The first row of the orchestra is made up of the string section and pianos. Our string section is divided into 5 parts: first violin, second violin, viola, cello, and double bass. Pianos and first violins are on the very left, followed by second violin, viola, cello, and double bass on the very right.

Behind the strings are the risers with winds, brass, percussion, and bass guitar. In the first row are flutes, oboes, clarinets, soprano, and saxophone. The second row is bass guitar, saxophones, bassoon, trumpets, and baritones. The last row is percussion, saxophones, and trombone.

Now you can locate where your friends are at the concert to support them (or take funny photos of them making weird faces while playing their instruments). Blair’s orchestra, as well as the singers and jazz ensemble, perform their fall repertoire on November 17th. Everyone has worked really hard to put on the best concert they can. Go support your friends at the fall concert!
