This edition of Young Artists Spotlight was pleased to feature musicians from Visalia. And it was mostly a family affair. The group for this live broadcast included 13-year-old twin brothers Trent Andrews, violin, and Marcus Andrews, French horn. Each was accompanied by Brian Johnson.
Then we had 12-year-old Logan Wells, trumpet, and his 10-year-old sister, Bethany Wells, two years into her French horn lessons. The siblings were accompanied by their proud mother, Carrie Wells.
The program concluded in fine fashion with 19-year-old Christian Amlarez, a 10-year-veteran of the cello and who attends College of the Sequoias. Her teacher, Carole Greening, provided the piano accompaniment.
The Tulare County Symphony played a big role in arranging the visits of these young artists from Visalia and will be scheduling additional young musicians for us for the April 1st program.
