Since early in progressive rock's history, the term has been used to distinguish more classically influenced progressive rock from the more psychedelic and experimental forms of progressive rock.

     Symphonic rock can be described as combining of progressive rock with classical music traditions.

       As early as 1966, with Frank Zappa's "Freak Out!" , concept albums started appearing that tied all the songs on an album into a thematic whole. The Beatles followed with their album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"  (1967) incorporating significant orchestral passages and studio editing. In the same year, The Moody Blues "Days of Future Passed" merged rock playing with orchestral accompaniment. Procol Harum's 1968 album "Shine On Brightly contained the epic length song "In Held Twas In I". These works and experiments led to what would become progressive rock, specifically symphonic prog in the United Kingdom.
