An Instrumental Ride in the Cash Cab

The New York Philharmonic was the topic of a Red Light Challenge on a recent episode of the Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab. The challenge: 30 seconds to name five of the six instruments that make up the woodwind section of the Orchestra. 

Words of advice from the knowledgeable passengers who were able to rack up $500 for answering correctly: never forget the piccolo.”

How would you have fared in this Cash Cab challenge?
