Troy Peters

Conductor, YOSA (Youth Orchestras of San Antonio) in San Antonio United States

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.

Rethinking the Role of the Orchestra

BY TROY PETERS
@ VOL 21 ON FEB 23, 2016

"You have to forge meaningful connections with the communities you are in. Ultimately...we want everything we do to matter to people in this town."
 
In Rethinking the Role of the Orchestra from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 21, Conductor Troy Peters poses the question, "How does one know a good orchestra?" He thinks your neighborhood policeman just might know the answer.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 21st, 2017.
