Brass & strings in small room

Hi folks! So here's my question -- I'd be grateful for any advice.

I have a nice home studio with a live room that is large for a project studio -- over 900 sq. feet with 20' vaulted ceilings and a 6' divider semi-partitioning part of the room -- but of course I am cursed with ambitions too great for my means. I need to record an ensemble with piano, 5 strings, three woodwinds and 5 brass instruments.

I am planning to spot mix each section, but I'm very concerned that the brass will still be overpowering in the room, especially with regard to the strings. I could record the brass as an overdub, but that presents other problems with ensemble cohesion.

What do you think I should do? Any good tips for positioning the sections cleverly to minimize bleed? I've got access to just about any type of mic, and have a number of gobos (and can always build more.)

Thanks for your thoughts!

if you don't want to overdub you just need to think about using gobos and the nulls of ribbon mics to your advantage.
