Now in its 121th season, the Peoria Symphony Orchestra was first known as the Bradley Symphony Orchestra under the direction and vision of musician and conductor Harold Plowe. On November 24, 1897, the Peoria Star newspaper wrote: ?An orchestra is to be organized under the auspices of the Bradley Institute for the study of orchestral compositions of the best masters, classic and modern. It will be open to all persons who possess the requisite musical skill and are otherwise suitable for membership. The orchestra will be under the general supervision of Dr. C.T. Wyckoff of the Institute. It will be directed by Harold Plowe, whose experience as a teacher and conductor especially fit him for this service. It is hoped to make this a permanent feature of the educational work of the institute and Peoria.? Nineteen years later, on December 5, 1916, the Bradley Symphony Orchestra incorporated and was renamed the ?Peoria Symphony Orchestra.?
