Rylan Gajek Leonard, a former student of Annie L Gaetze school has just been selected as a cellist with the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. Now living in Salt Spring Island, at 16, he is the youngest you can be to get into the NYOC — the oldest is 28. One of his instructors when he lived here in Red Deer was Janet Lapalme. This is the 50th anniversary of the NYOC, and they will make appearances in Calgary and Edmonton in August.
