Orchestra musicians and their instruments

The accordion holds a lofty place

Harps: Heaven for a plucky few

The bass is always the heavy

The bassoon: Symphonic spine

The saxophone, on a more serious note

Violas: They're hardly second string

The English horn: A mournful cry of 'ahhh'

Percussionists make up a precision strike force

The tuba, a.k.a. the bass of the brass
