Romance by the Peoria Symphony Orchestra

02/09/19 07:30PM - 09:30PM

ROMANCE returns to the Peoria Civic Center Theater on February 9, 2019, at 7:30 pm with an evening of charm, jazz, wit, grace, and beauty.

Make it a full evening and join us for our third annual ROMANCE AFTER PARTY in the Peoria Civic Center Lobby following the concert featuring The Judy Page Project!

From Strauss’ "Wine, Women, and Song" and Copland’s "Rodeo," to Duke Ellington’s "Piano Concerto (A New World A-Comin')," this will prove to be a romantic evening for everyone. Be prepared to laugh along with comic M.C. BUTLER RYAN and watch the enrapturing dances of the Central Illinois Ballet. Todd Kelly & Friends will perform original music. The PSO’s 2018-2019 Artist in Residence, Geoffrey Duce, joins on piano.

Whether it’s a first date or you are attending with friends, love will be in the air!
