Auditions Open For Youth Orchestra Musicians

An interview with Troy Peters

This week local youth can audition for the 2013-14 season of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio. Musicians who have been playing their instrument at least one year, and are ages 8 to 20 years old are eligible.

Troy Peters is the music director and conductor of the YOSA Philharmonic. He says it is a great experience, and fun. "This year guests include Christopher O'Riley, host of From The Top, plus Tracy Silverman, electric violinist, and our first performance in Lila Cockrell Theater."

There are also side by side concerts with the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra, sectional coachings, and a beginning of the year retreat.

Interested musicians should sign up for an audition on the YOSA website. Peters adds there will be a few auditions in Fall 2013 as well.
