New River Valley Symphony

The New River Valley Symphony Orchestra, a university-community orchestra, is open to students, faculty, and local community residents by audition. Since the orchestra first presented a concert on campus in 1971, it has continuously reached out to the community, providing performing opportunities for students and non-students and presenting concerts representing symphonic literature of the highest aesthetic value.

Each year the symphony presents a subscription series and a limited number of off-campus concerts. Their performances frequently highlight guest artists as featured soloists. The most recent season included guest conductor Steven White, former Opera Roanoke director, conducting Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D major in the newly-opened Moss Arts Center. Past seasons have seen renowned soloists performing on practically every symphonic instrument and piano, many of them former Virginia Tech students.

Number of performers: 80
Schedule: Tuesday & Thursday, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Director: James Glazebrook
