Sean-Paul Gouw, 12, enjoys standing behind his double bass and playing along to songs from Disney movies. His talents go beyond cartoon soundtracks however — he's one of the youngest members of the Junior Philharmonic Orchestra. As the orchestra's principal bass player, he's performed everything from show tunes to Tchaikovsky.
Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us!
