What does '+' mean in an orchestral score? This was an examination question in a music theory exam and I have been unable to find out the meaning
Above a note it could mean 'stopped' for a French Horn. 'Closed' or 'damped' for a hi-hat or crush cymbal. For a stringed instrument it means a left hand pizzicato. In a chord symbol it means the basic triad has an augmented 5th, as in 'C7+'.
Did the theory paper give no further context?
