I have played with the following orchestras including Orchestra London, Hamilton Symphony Orchestra, Montréal Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Orchestra, l'Opéra de Montréal, the National Ballet Orchestra, and the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra; and with such artists as Aretha Franklin, Pavarotti, Yes, John Pizzarelli, George Burns, Chris De Burgh to name just a few. I have also played such musicals as Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Showboat, Ragtime, Miss Saigon, and Beauty and the Beast. In 2006 I created the Toronto Art Orchestra a jazz orchestra devoted to playing the greatest jazz master’s works.
