In 1988 he received the Sylva Gelber Foundation Award from the Canada Council of the Arts when he was chosen as Most Promising Artist in both piano and brass categories.
He has been invited as a professor, adjudicator, soloist, principal or recitalist to many festivals including the Festival of the Sound, Scotiafest, the Orford Festival, the Kiwanis National Music Festival, the New Brunswick Summer Music Festival, the Ottawa Chamber Festival, the Elora Festival, Tanglewood (USA), Takefu International Music Festival (Japan), and the Oregon Bach Festival (USA).
