The instruments in a symphonic orchestra are usually arranged in a specific way: each instrument has its own place. They are grouped in families: first, the string family; behind them, the woodwind family; then the brass instruments, and finally, the percussion section. The piano and the harp do not always appear in the orchestra – there are several pieces of music which do not need them. When they do appear, they are normally in front of the orchestra.
