I've always wondered...
It seems to me that an orchestra can function without a conductor, but the quality of the musical product will be very low.
A significant factor is the size of the orchestra.If it's small the time taken for one side of it to hear the other is short so they can keep in synchrony.
a good orchestra, well rehearsed will only be using the music as aide memoir.
