December 11, 2016 - 4:15pm

For those of us who make it our business to know what's good in San Antonio music, Troy Peters—composer, music advocate, and director of Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA)—has been a beacon of inspiration for years now. It seems we aren't the only ones to note Peters' consistent arete and efficacy in his work, however, as Musical America Worldwide just named him among its Top 30 Musical Professionals of the Year, a distinction awarded to individuals who "have generated new ideas, launched or notably advanced a business, programmed a new series, or all of the above.” Above all, those who receive the honor are notable as folks who "not only innovate" but also "inspire us." So get excited about the next installment of the YOSA Classic Albums Live series: YOSA Presents Purple Rain Live, which goes down March 13 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
