PEORIA, Ill. -- Music was echoing off buildings in downtown Peoria today during the Brown Bag It concert.

The Brown Bag It concert is a free concert that takes place during lunchtime.

David McDonald and some of his students played songs at the Courthouse Plaza while people listened, ate outside, and enjoyed the nice afternoon weather.

“I think I got head turns. I saw people singing some of the songs I was playing, so I think it was good,” said McDonald. “I even saw some people singing the words to the songs that my students were playing. It was cool."

The Brown Bag It concert series takes place every Monday and Wednesday through August 27 at the Peoria County Courthouse Plaza.
