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. Past seasons have seen renowned soloists performing on practically every symphonic instrument and piano, many of them former Virginia Tech students.
