In general, the instruments in the orchestra have their own designated positions. To be able to identify these instruments, you must know that brass instruments are played through a mouthpiece. Examples of which are trumpets, baritones, tubas, slide trombones, and French horns.

This is simply people's opinions. I think people prefer orchestras because there are more porfessional orchestras than professional concert bands, there is a larger variety of music for orchestra, and the orchestra can have a larger variety of instruments.
The classical orchestra has more woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments. It is also more versatile and can play more complex or subtle pieces.
Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass There are far more than four instruments in a typical symphony orchestra. There are four groups of instruments: the woodwinds, the brass, the percussion, and the strings.
