Here’s one from a friend of mine (oboist). A conductor was doing a choir and orchestra piece. While rehearsing the choir specifically she stood in the middle (between the choir and orchestra). The concertmaster gave the downbeat so everyone could play.

It’s a standard orchestra, right? (yes).

She kept asking (in her particularly snooty british accent) for ‘More Saxophone!’
