In 2009 Troy Peters stepped down after 14 years directing the Vermont Youth Orchestra.  The first weekend in May of 2009 he lead the world premier of Champlain's Voyage, which he wrote for the Youth Orchestra, plus works of Brahms and Gershwin.  He stopped by the VPR studios in Colchester and spoke with Walter Parker about his future plans.
