Recently, he was a prizewinner at the Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s Standard Life Competition and this past summer was awarded one of the top prizes at the Peter the Great Festival in The Netherlands.
In May of 2010, Cameron was invited to tour China as part of the Talbot Duo (cello and piano), giving concerts in several cities, including a performance in the prestigious Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre. He has also given solo performances in The Netherlands and throughout Canada.
