  Orchestra \Or"ches*tra\, n. [L. orchestra, Gr. ?, orig., the
     place for the chorus of dancers, from ? to dance: cf. F.
     orchestre.]
     1. The space in a theater between the stage and the audience;
        -- originally appropriated by the Greeks to the chorus and
        its evolutions, afterward by the Romans to persons of
        distinction, and by the moderns to a band of instrumental
        musicians. Now commonly called orchestra pit, to
        distinguish it from the section of the main floor occupied
        by spectators.
        [1913 Webster +PJC]
  
     2. The space in the main floor of a theater in which the
        audience sits; also, the forward spectator section of the
        main floor, in distinction from the parterre, which is
        the rear section of the main floor.
        [PJC]
  
     3. The place in any public hall appropriated to a band of
        instrumental musicians.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. (Mus.)
        (a) Loosely: A band of instrumental musicians performing
            in a theater, concert hall, or other place of public
            amusement.
        (b) Strictly: A band suitable for the performance of
            symphonies, overtures, etc., as well as for the
            accompaniment of operas, oratorios, cantatas, masses,
            and the like, or of vocal and instrumental solos.
        (c) A band composed, for the largest part, of players of
            the various viol instruments, many of each kind,
            together with a proper complement of wind instruments
            of wood and brass; -- as distinguished from a military
            or street band of players on wind instruments, and
            from an assemblage of solo players for the rendering
            of concerted pieces, such as septets, octets, and the
            like.
            [1913 Webster]
  
     5. (Mus.) The instruments employed by a full band,
        collectively; as, an orchestra of forty stringed
        instruments, with proper complement of wind instruments.
        [1913 Webster]
