Agreement of sound. Symphonies are music compositions in classical music, specifically classical music of the West. The composer that arranges symphonies usually writes them for an orchestra. The orchestras that perform these symphonies typically range from 30 to 100 musicians.

The composer writes symphonies for several instruments to be used, including violins, violas, and cellos. Early on the word, harmony was a generic term, used for virginals and spinets. In the late 16th and 17th centuries, more composers began to use the word in their works, which is how the concept became widely known.

A symphony is a musical composition that is usually written by composers for an orchestra. The word symphony came from the Greek word, Symphonia, that means an agreement of sound. It does usually consist of a brass section, percussion, string, and woodwind instruments that are played by about 30 to 100 musicians.

Not all symphony is played by pure instruments; one famous symphony, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, has vocal parts. It is noticeable that almost all musical instruments used in an orchestra have a soft to modulated sound as first, there were no electric guitars and basses when this first started and secondly, the musical instruments used in a symphony are more dramatic than they somewhat tell you a story.
