Orchestras called this world orchestra

By cseeman

There are many bands and bands called orchestras such as gamelan and gagaku in the world, although it is easy to think that a group of dozens of classical musicians gathers and plays is an "orchestra". Unlike western orchestra I think this is also really an orchestra. What is the boundary between the orchestra and what is not so?

The etymology of the orchestra is a circular ballroom "Orchestra" for the choir singing and dancing at an ancient Greek theater. In the Baroque period, San Cassiano of the opera theater was built in Venice, and the space for the instrument player who accompanied the opera was called Orquestra. It eventually came to point to the orchestra playing in this place, and it reaches the present.

That is, the word "orchestra" has no clear definition. For that reason one big orchestra began to be called an orchestra, and in some cases he began to name himself an orchestra.

In such a position, there are various forms of orchestras in the world. Below, we will look at the orchestra called orchestra.
