Trivia: What is the difference between chamber and symphony orchestras?
Chamber is smaller
Chamber is larger
Symphony is a proper name
There’s no difference
The correct answer is Chamber is smaller
So why is this answer correct? : Chambers, symphonies, and philharmonics are all types of orchestras, but they’re not always synonymous. Chamber orchestras include 50 or fewer people, while symphonies might have a hundred or more. Philharmonics and symphonies are exactly the same in everything but name, as philharmonics are only used as proper names — such as in the New York Philharmonic — rather than as a general term.
