Part of our core mission at the Tulare County Symphony is to support the development of young musicians. We were pleased to facilitate this event at Cafe 225--a big thanks to owner Karl Merten for agreeing to host Kendall's surprise performance--especially since we sprung this on him only a few hours earlier!
