- Sefi Rivlin, who had been missing from theaters for seven years, was diagnosed with vocal cord cancer some time ago. Thankfully, he has been responding well to experimental cancer treatment in Boston, Massachusetts (USA), and seems to be in good spirits. He is now working to bring the same experimental treatments to Israel (thanks to Julian Chagrin and Israeli fan Tal Moshe for this information).
- "Dance of the Hours" won the Independent Programme Golden Rose award (first prize) at the 1985 Montreux TV Festival in Switzerland.
- The Orchestra was apparently filmed at Jerusalem Capital Studios.
- Julian-Joy Chagrin played the Secret Lemonade Drinker in the United Kingdom's classic R Whites ad of the same name that ran in the late 70s and early 80s. The ad came in at no. 7 on Channel 4's 100 Greatest Adverts.
- At the maestro's home in "Concert for Brass, Bombs, & Blowpipes!" there is a picture of him together with Beethoven (as his valet dusts his tuxedo, it's visible on the wall behind, and to the right of, the maestro).
- Lazar Shuster, the actor who plays the part of the 'busker violinist' in "Unwelcome Guest" also plays the driver of the mayor/Mafia leader in "Photo Finish!" (seen looking startled into the limousine when the mayor takes over the driving after his bodyguard telephones him).
- Title screens for The Orchestra seem to have been left up to the broadcasting companies to produce for the series; for example, the South African and German title screens are quite different ("Das Verruckte Orchester" literally translates to "The Crazy Orchestra"):
