Conductor, YOSA (Youth Orchestras of San Antonio)
in San Antonio
Troy Peters has been Music Director of YOSA (Youth Orchestras of San Antonio) since 2009. Throughout his conducting career, he has built meaningful connections between the classical music tradition and local cultural scenes across the U.S. He presented Portland indie folk act Blind Pilot with the Oregon Symphony, commissioned composers (including Phish’s Trey Anastasio) to write for the Vermont Youth Orchestra, and paired a mariachi band and a Tejano legend with the San Antonio Symphony. Sobre Sound recently named his “OK Computer Live” project, in which a dozen local bands covered Radiohead’s landmark album backed by a full symphony orchestra at the Tobin Center, San Antonio’s top moment in music for 2015.
