The Simón Bolívar Symphonic Rock Orchestra (SBSRO) made its debut in Caracas in 2011 and is part of the orchestral program at the Simón Bolívar Conservatory of Music.  Its repertoire includes pieces that combine progressive rock of all time with classical music traditions. All the pieces are arranged by renowned musicians such as Jorge Rojas, Ángel Quiñones and Daniel Hurtado.

The orchestra consists of four violins, four cellos, a double bass, two saxophones, two trumpets, a trombone, two electric guitars, an electric bass, a keyboard, drums and percussion instruments.

In November 2012, under the baton of maestro Alfredo Rugeles, the SBSRO —accompanied by the Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra, the Simón Bolívar Youth Choir and the National Children’s Choir of Venezuela— performed in a tribute concert to Queen and Pink Floyd at the Simón Bolívar Hall of the National Center for Social Action through Music.
