There was a trumpet and tenor out front. There were more back in the orchestra. There was one drummer and one percussionist. The rest of the orchestra was 3 violins, a cello, a lead viola/violin, 4 reeds, 3 trumpets, a trombone, and a bass trombone.
The whole thing was phenomenal. There was one piece where there were lots of long drum solos that was especially outstanding.
And the night was still young ...
