Discover the 2014-2015 Season of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra.
Welcome to the 117th season of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra – the fourteenth oldest symphony orchestra in the United States. We are proud of our musical heritage and the diverse mix of music we have been providing to symphony lovers in Peoria and all throughout central Illinois.
The Peoria Symphony Orchestra concerts this season will feature some of the greatest orchestral expressions of all time. From the passion of Romeo and Juliet experienced through Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and Berlioz – to the mystery and power of nature depicted by Vaughan-Williams and Sibelius – to the charm of Beethoven and Mozart’s Vienna – to Baroque treasures from Italy; each concert is designed to be a special musical experience for you and your family. Join us at the Peoria Civic Center or Grace Church to enjoy these captivating concerts.
World Artist violinist Sarah Chang opens our season with an amazing display of violin virtuosity. Gustav Mahler’s awe-inspiring Symphony No. 7 makes its historic Peoria premiere. Popular artist Lyle Lovett gives a special concert for Peoria and Quartetto Gelato performs a delightful crossover classical style concert. Matinee at the Movies, a concert of fun for the entire family returns by popular demand. Our Musical Discovery Series at the Peoria Symphony Orchestra’s Riverfront venue is a perfect introduction to the orchestra for young children.
The tradition of artistic excellence and excitement you have come to expect from your orchestra continues throughout this season! Join us for this truly wonderful season as we celebrate music together with you.
