Skylar's Unignorable Story

Skylar is 14 years old and attends Saint John the Baptist/King Edward School in Saint John. He began attending Sistema when he was 6 years old and quickly moved through the program to play violin with the Saint John Youth Orchestra, Sistema Chamber Orchestra, and at 11 years old became a member of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra. Having been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just before joining Sistema, the orchestral journey presented challenges, but with support and encouragement it did not stand in the way of his love for music.
