News from the Green Mountain State: Troy Peters, music director of the Vermont Youth Orchestra, will be leaving his post in August 2009 to be the new music director of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA).
I know this may not seem like big news to you, but it should be. Not only did he help grow the youth orchestra, but he also placed the VYO on the map with a few ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming. Not too shabby, I say!
Here is Troy Peters conducting the Voodoo Violin Concerto No. 1 by Daniel Bernard Roumain with the VYO and DBR, violinist.
