producing a digitally generated orchestra would need to be done in real-time and consumer based computers are not fast enough (yet), just like You can't raytrace a convincing image in real-time either, never-mind a sequence of them for realtime video. You could model a convincing digitally generated orchestra but no one is going to want to wait for it to process. It would take days much like it takes for a convincing ray-traced image/animations.
