In English, in an orchestra one might say that one's chair position is
2nd Violin, 5th chair. The 2nd Violin part is easy to say:
第二小提琴. But the 5th chair part is troubling. My question is the Chinese way to say
X chair where
X is larger than 2?
I've asked a number of native Chinese speakers but they were also stymied. I'm aware that 1st chair and 2nd chair are 首席 and 副首席.
EDIT: What I mean by
chair is a ranking of skill within the section. It is not very related to the row. An example
(1st row contains 1violin-1stchair, 2v-1c, 1v-2c, and 2v-2c)
