I got a link to this video in my in-box today, and it made me smile more than a little bit. It features the varied talents of the members of the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio, which is led with style and expertise by my long-time friend, Troy Peters (who is YOSA’s music director & conductor).
Here’s the description that goes along with the video:
On June 17, 2012, Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) made a stop at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport on their way to London. During their layover, they rocked a Pop-Up Orchestra. This is their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”…shot in one shot, walking through the airport. Stop and feel the music.
The mission of Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, the premier orchestral experience for youth citywide, is to enhance education, enrich the community and transform lives by pursuing excellence in classical music in a stimulating, nurturing and fun environment that is equally accessible to all youth.
