Is this a good representation of the orchestra you played with?  If so, sure looks big!

Yes Oliver, this is the orchestra that I played with and was one of the section leaders of the last 16 years in Sweden. I gave up this job 2 years ago to move to Florida.

It's an OK representation but more commercial if you know what I mean.
I think the orchestra is around 94 people. Malmo is the 3rd largest city in Sweden and furthest big city south. You can take a subway/train over to Copenhagen, Denmark and it will take you less than 30 minutes city to city.

I would guess you are also familiar with the music hall shown in the video.  Could you guess how big the audiences might be?  I'm curious in comparison to attendance over here?  I would guess the hall must be very large to musically accomodate such a big orchestra?

I played in that hall more times than I care to count. lol

I think that it holds 13-1400 people. There was a time that we filled all the concerts. Certain popular programs would always sell out. When we played contemporary music we could have more people in the orchestra than we did in the audience. roflol Good old times. 🙂

It's the same hall I played in this summer btw.
