Gabrielo (Gabby) Arojo was born in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia and later immigrated with his family to Canada.  He began playing the flute at the age of 13, and since then, he has been a member with notable ensembles in Alberta, such as the Edmonton Youth Orchestra and the ECSD Senior All-City Band.  As a self-taught flutist, he was awarded first place in the 2023 Edmonton Music and Speech Arts Festival; he later received recommendation to play at the Alberta Provincial Music Festival and the Canada West Performing Arts Festival where he was awarded first place under the “Senior Woodwinds” category. In 2022, he served as principal flutist in the inaugural concert of the U of Alberta Summer Orchestra.  Gabby currently balances his musical pursuits with his nursing career as a Licensed Practical Nurse, and with his studies at MacEwan University working towards a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
