A symphony orchestra is a large instrumental ensemble typical of classical music, mixing instruments from different families, including bowed string instruments such as violin, viola, cello and double bass, as well as brass, woodwinds and percussion, grouped in sections. Other instruments such as the piano and celesta may sometimes appear in a fifth keyboard section or stand alone, as do the concert harp and, for the performance of some modern compositions, electronic instruments.

A full symphony orchestra can sometimes be called a philharmonic orchestra. The actual number of musicians employed in a given performance may vary from seventy to more than one hundred, depending on the work performed and the size of the hall. The term chamber orchestra (and sometimes concert orchestra) usually refers to smaller ensembles of fifty or fewer musicians. Orchestras that specialize in the baroque music of Johann Sebastian Bach and George Friedrich Handel, for example, or the classical repertoire, such as that of Haydn and Mozart, tend to be smaller than orchestras that perform a repertoire of romantic music, such as the symphonies of Johannes Brahms. The typical orchestra grew in size during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, reaching its peak with the large orchestras (up to 120 musicians) that Richard Wagner and later Gustav Mahler's work was known for.

Orchestras are usually led by a conductor. He unifies the orchestra, sets the tempo and shapes the sound of the ensemble. The conductor also prepares the orchestra by conducting rehearsals before the public concert, during which the conductor instructs the musicians on the interpretation of the music played on the scores.

The conductor of the first violin section, commonly called the concertmaster, also plays an important role in leading the musicians. In the Baroque period (1600-1750), orchestras were often led by the concertmaster or by a musician playing basso continuo on a harpsichord or pipe organ, a tradition that some early music ensembles of the 20th and 21st centuries are continuing. Orchestras play a wide range of repertoire, including symphonies, opera and ballet overtures, solo instrument concertos and pit ensembles for opera, ballet and certain types of musical theatre.

Amateur orchestras include orchestras composed of elementary or secondary school students, youth orchestras, and community orchestras, the latter two generally consisting of amateur musicians from a particular city or region.

The term orchestra derives from the Greek ὀρχήστρα (orchestra), the name of the space in front of a stage in the ancient Greek theatre reserved for the Greek choir.
