Fall season for Youth Orchestras of San Antonio opens this week. Music Director Troy Peters told us that the program he has planned has a lot to do with the Tobin Center itself, where it’s happening on Sunday.
“It’s an amazing place to make a big sound. We’re going to play Saint Saens’ organ symphony. It’s a spectacular piece. It blows the roof off the place.”
To do so they’ll use the Tobin’s little-known in-house organ. It's a great big thing that is mostly kept far below the stage, but to bring out and set up, takes several stage hands hours to execute.
