The Youth Orchestra of San Antonio traces its roots back more than 60 years to the San Antonio Youth Symphony.

Now composed of 350 musicians and eight different orchestras, the orchestra seeks to help kids through music. Youth Orchestra of San Antonio director Troy Peters says through the orchestra, kids get an enlarged sense of their own potential -- both in music and whatever else they pursue.

“YOSA changes kids’ lives through music here in San Antonio,” Peters said. “We work with hundreds of kids throughout the city on unleashing their own musical potential.”
