I'm a film student at NYU in the process of writing a feature script for class about a violinist and the orchestra, and would like to ask about the life of a performer in an orchestra.
What kind of relationships exist between the orchestra members? Competitive amongst like instruments? Lots of time spent together? Collaborating on the kinds of music played, and how to play them?
Who would be the boss of the orchestra? How do conductors control the direction of the orchestra? And does he/she have any important collaborators in the running of the show?
Sorry if some of these questions seem basic, but I would appreciate as many details as possible.
