      School-Day Performance: New River Valley Symphony

      Open to students in grades 4-8 Let the New River Valley Symphony Orchestra and your imagination take you on a magical tour with a program that includes the dramatic Prelude from Wagner’s Lohengrin; a movement from one of Mozart’s most famous piano concertos; an excerpt from Aaron Copland’s Billy the Kid, which has everything from a barn dance to a gunfight; and Arturo Marquez’s lively tribute to Mexico City’s world-famous dance halls, Danzon No. 2. Free; registration required *Note: to reserve more than 100 seats, please return to this site and submit additional orders. For more information, contact Jon at rjginn@vt.edu. -- 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.
