Portland Monthly has published a nice preview of Troy’s April 27 concert with Blind Pilot and the Oregon Symphony.
“I don’t think every person who shows up to hear a rock band with an orchestra will say, ‘Ooh, I can’t wait to come back and hear Brahms,’” says the concert’s guest conductor, Troy Peters, who has a history of working with rock musicians ranging from Phish’s Trey Anastasio to Yes’s Jon Anderson. “But some people will, and they’ll find that when a great orchestra is firing on all cylinders, it rocks, no matter what it’s playing.”
Tickets and information are available from the Oregon Symphony.
