VSO on VPR Classical tomorrow night (Sept. 8)

On Wednesday, September 8, beginning at 7 p.m., VPR Classical, VPR's 24-hour classical music network, will feature a recording of the VSO's September 2003 performance of Troy Peters' "Between Hills Briefly Green" as part of the nationally broadcast program, "Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin."

VPR's Cheryl Willoughby says, "Earlier this summer I was contacted by the producers of the national radio program, "Exploring Music With Bill McGlaughlin" because they were putting together a program called "Director's Choice", featuring music choices from a select handful of music programmers from around the country. I was asked to submit a few of my favorite pieces to share with the wider radio audience. I submitted four, and I learned today that three of them will be featured in the program airing on Sept. 8th. One of these is Troy Peters' "Between Hills Briefly Green", and the performance they're using will be a live concert recording with the VSO led by Jaime Laredo."
