Troy Is Riding Blind With The Valkyries


Troy Peters spends his time trying to wrangle orchestra members. Troy is the music director for Youth Orchestras of San Antonio. If anyone can talk about the hair-raising excitement of a performance and trying to keep it from going wrong, it is him. But this story isn't about wrangling kids. He says in terms of milestones he remembers his Carnegie Hall debut, his conducting the first show at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and a performance in the tiny town of Beeville, Texas.

This story was recorded at the March 7, 2017 Worth Repeating with the theme "Big Breaks and Busts." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
