OK - so here are the numbers for the ensembles I play in:

Band:
conductor - male
5 flutes - 4 male, 1 female
2 oboes - 1 male, 1 female
2 bassoons - 2 female
12 clarinets - 7 male, 5 female
2 bass clarinets - 1 male, 1 female
5 saxes - 2 male, 3 female
7 horns - 5 males, 2 female
8 trumpets - 5 male, 4 female
6 trombones - 3 male, 3 female
3 tubas - 1 male, 2 female
5 percussionists - 1 male, 4 female

Orchestra:
conductor - male
4 flutes - 4 male
3 oboes - 2 male, 1 female
4 bassoons - 1 male, 3 female
4 clarinets - 3 male, 1 female
1 bass clarinet - 1 male
8 horns - 5 male, 4 female
4 trumpets - 4 male
2 trombones - 2 female
1 tuba - 1 male
3 percussionists - 1 male, 2 female

For the record, I'm in the wind symphony in my college. I think that we
are more "male dominated" than the other ensembles. In fact there are no
males in the other two clarinet sections at all. Go figure. (Needless
to say, I really enjoy being in this ensemble. Not only is it musically
fulfilling, I have more chances to work with some guys :)
