A harpsichordist (behind the cellist) playing in the Hogwarts orchestra, during the 1993 Start-of-Term Feast.

Harpsichords are keyboard instruments that produce sound by having the strings plucked with a plectrum. Harpsichords were very important in music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. They were used as solo instruments as well as to accompany an orchestra.

There was at least one harpsichordist playing with the Hogwarts orchestra. She played the instrument when the orchestra performed Something Wicked This Way Comes alongside the Frog Choir during the 1993 Start-of-Term Feast.[1]
