Heartland Festival Orchestra Plays Annual “New Year’s Greeting”


Peoria’s Heartland Festival Orchestra and conductor David Commanday were honored in 2011 by the Illinois Council of Orchestras as Professional Orchestra and Conductor of the Year. They earned those distinctions for their mix of high-quality performances, informal concert atmosphere and commitment to community. They’ll play their annual “New Year’s Greeting” concert Saturday, and I’ll talk with David Commanday on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.””
