Orchestra is better than band due to the fact that orchestra has a larger amount of possible music. For example, An orchestra is able to play both calm and soothing classical music that can assist people to calm down and take a break from their busy lives. An orchestra is also about to play pop and movie music/soundtracks just like the band. Orchestras have large variations in the number of people because the loss of one player does not affect the whole orchestra. On the other hand, A band concert could be easily ruined if a tuba was missing.

As a trumpet player I accept the challenge. Also let me know what you play haha.

"An orchestra is able to play both calm and soothing classical music that can assist people to calm down and take a break from their busy lives. "

Wind Ensembles can also play soothing music. Smooth jazz is one, And we can also play soft classical music. These serve the same purposes that the orchestra proposes to be the only one to serve.

"An orchestra is also about to play pop and movie music/soundtracks just like the band. "

Untrue, Just like the wind ensembles cannot imitate the sounds of an orchestra, The orchestra cannot imitate the sounds of the wind ensemble. Imagine a marching orchestra, Or a jazz orchestra haha.

"Orchestras have large variations in the number of people because the loss of one player does not affect the whole orchestra. On the other hand, A band concert could be easily ruined if a tuba was missing. "

I do give in a bit here, It is true that orchestras are more malleable than bands. But, I would argue bands are billions more times malleable than orchestras when it comes to different music types. Bands can do jazz and marching. We can be loud and strong yet timid and weak. We can have a loosey goosey jazz band along with a military like disciplined marching band.
