Peoria Symphony Kicks Off New Season with Scottish Fantasy

Sep 21, 2018

This week, Nathan Irwin talks with George Stelluto, conductor of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra; and with violinist Catherine Cho. The PSO opens its new season with a concert that includes the "Scottish Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra" by Max Bruch, a piece that incorporates Scottish folk songs. The program also includes the Seventh Symphony by Antonin Dvorak. Stelluto says that the composers represent a trend in the late Romantic era, to draw on the influences of traditional folk music. Cho also talks about her other activites in the community, as part of the PSO's Resident Artist Week.

The Peoria Symphony Orchestra presents its next concert, "Scottish Fantasy," tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. in the Peoria Civic Center Theatre.
