Business Forward with Matt George

The Peoria Symphony Orchestra’s Musical Discovery concerts are a special musical adventure designed to entertain and educate children. The concert encourages children to discover all instruments of the orchestra—one at a time. Programs include Heavenly Harp, Trusty Trombone, Fantastic Flute, and many more! Presented by musicians of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, each program features the sounds and music each instrument can create. The series was taped in collaboration with WTVP.
