Youth Orchestras of San Antonio is about to tackle a tough assignment.  It's complicated, extreme and takes no small amount of effort.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio has a performance planned that's honoring a fallen pop star. It's YOSA's third foray into re-creating classic albums live. Troy Peters is the music director.

"On Monday night, March 13th, YOSA's going to present Purple Rain live--a celebration of the music of Prince, with twelve San Antonio bands and a full symphony orchestra at the Tobin Center."

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio continues its recent theme of interpreting classical music through a rock-n-roll filter. The recent passing of rock legend David Bowie made Troy Peters think something had to be done.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio's next  performance has an interesting premise. I spoke to Music Director Troy Peters, who explains it.

"This Sunday May 1 we're going to be previewing YOSA's European tour, and we're especially excited to be featuring a YOSA Alumna, Jennifer Berg, who's a remarkable oboist, who also plays with the San Antonio Symphony."

Berg thinks the oboe stands alone in its sound, a sound that helps it cut through the other players' sounds.
