The Orchester HohnerKlang utilizes Accordions to supplement and support the
sound of harmonicas in the orchestra.  https://www.hohnerklang.de/  Here
they are performing Pirates of the Carribian.

The Hong Kong Harmonica Association Orchestra uses melodicas.  Here is a
performance which I had the pleasure to hear live in Trossingen Germany.
