Denise burst onto the international music scene when millions of television viewers watched her performance of Bach at the 2002 Grammy Awards following the lauded release of her self-titled debut
recording on SONY Classical.
Since then, Denise has accrued numerous distinctions and accolades: she has been named one of the top 25 Canadians Who Are Changing Our World by Maclean’s Magazine, one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women by Elle Magazine, and had her life and career chronicled by a special BRAVO! TV documentary entitled Seven Days, Seven Nights. A natural leader and advocate for classical music, Denise believes strongly in passing along her knowledge of music and her instrument. She serves on the Faculty of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada each summer, has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Ottawa, and frequently gives master classes.
