Default Mixing with Orchestra


I'm currently working on a project which is a dance/pop track which includes a full orchestra. My question is regarding the mixing of the orchestra. I'm happy with the panning of all my instruments in terms of the seating plan of a typical orchestra but not with the placement/distance from the listener's point of view (I.E. French Horn appearing to be behind violins but in front of the percussion.) I'm also concerned about the vocalist being clearly in front of everything else.

If anyone can give me any hints about this sort of thing, I'd be very grateful.

The orchestra on its own is here MP3 if anyone has a moment to listen to it (just a one minute excerpt). I created it using the Siedlaczek sample library. There are a couple of silent gaps where the singer will be unaccompanied.

Thanks in advance for any help.
