what tmgallagh means by a concert band.

Drums only. We have those. Venice Beach Drum Circle.

It wouldn't be that hard to mic either. If you do it exactly right, you can get the crashing surf behind you. If that fails, record some crashing surf and put it behind you in post. Post production is a wonderful thing.

I agree. "Concert Band" to me is a troop of High-School kids with trumpet, clarinets, saxes,... all the way down to sousaphones and kettle drums.

Very difficult to record without using a whole array of microphones.

I agree with you both, but the question the OP asked, dealt with using Audacity, as well as storage requirements. I assumed that they are a School Group as well and have a A/V group to set things up. I gave my 12 year old Granddaughter my HD Handy Cam 2 months ago, because my iPhone 6+ has better video as well as audio, to record with. Go figure. If they are going to mic up all the different instruments / singers, they are going to need a boat load of recording gear and should have no problem shelling out less then $200 for a digital recorder.

Personally, I think they maybe have 5 to 10 mics running into a 10 or 12 channel mixer. But without having all the needed information on what it is, they are trying to do, this is just my opinion as well as a, not so very close, "educated guess".
