About This Quiz

Like we were saying, an orchestra is a large group of instruments, a.k.a. an ensemble, that perfects the mixing of said instruments to make sounds that our minds sometimes don't comprehend, but we still love and appreciate. Some of the most well-known instruments include violins, keyboards, harps, guitars and cellos. But that's far from all of them. Could you identify those and more if we played their sounds for you? Well, we can't do that here, so how about if we just show you their pictures?

If you're up to the challenge, we're going to show you some instruments you may have never heard of, but have definitely heard - and it will be your job to tell us what they are. Get ready to see some contrabassoons, harpsichords, saxhorns, vibraphones, marimbas, flugelhorns and more - each of which plays a part (quite literally) in the beautiful pieces that you hear and enjoy. 

All we really want to know is whether you've got the musical chops and knowledge to correctly identify each and every one of the common and/or weird instruments highlighted in this quiz and in your town's best orchestra. If you're up to the challenge, go ahead and start this quiz right now.
