The Gonzaga Symphony Orchestra is comprised of students, faculty, and musicians from the greater Spokane community.

Open to all students by audition, the orchestra performs regularly at the acoustically outstanding and historic Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox.

The orchestra has featured soloists of national and international distinction, including pianists Pascal Rogé, Simone Dinnerstein, Navah Perlman, Natasha Paremski and Awadagin Pratt; violinists Shlomo Mintz, Cho-Liang Lin, Giora Schmidt, Kyung Sun Lee, Elmira Darvarova, Kurt Nikkanen, Tim Fain and Jinjoo Cho; violist Paul Coletti; cellists Lynn Harrell, Sung-Won Yang and Amit Peled; double bassist Gary Karr; clarinetist Richard Stoltzman; and soprano Arianna Zukerman.

The Gonzaga Symphony also hosts the prestigious Young Artists' Concerto and Aria Competition, giving Gonzaga students the opportunity to solo with the orchestra.
