CAMERON DENBY is a Métis percussionist, teacher, and project director. He holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Manitoba, and a Professional Studies Diploma from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Since returning to Winnipeg in 2019, Cameron has been creating and directing concerts and projects, including the Fresh Blood Project, an ongoing collaborative initiative between composers and percussionists featuring world premieres of new works and arrangements of various music for percussion ensembles.

Working in a variety of circles, Cameron has performed many local organizations, including the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Little Opera Company, and the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band. Outside of performance, Cameron teaches private lessons on drums, marimba, and percussion.

Cameron was raised in a musical family and began his musical training early on with private piano and drum lessons. Denby focused primarily on the drumset, accompanying local choirs and musical theatre shows, until he discovered the marimba in high school. During his studies in the Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music, University of Manitoba the marimba was his primary instrument. Graduating in 2018, he pursued higher education at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, in the studio of Jack van Geem. Cameron also had the opportunity to work with Jacob Nissly and Ed Stephan while at the Conservatory. He graduated with a Professional Studies Diploma in Marimba Performance in 2019.

Cameron has received numerous awards and distinctions and has a wide variety of performance experience. He was chosen to receive the Marcel A. Desaultels Fund Award in 2014 and 2015, then the Desaultels Faculty of Music Scholarship in 2016 and 2017. In addition, he was on the Dean’s Honour List from 2014-2017. Cameron has extensive performance experience both as a solo performer and as part of an ensemble. As a solo performer, Cameron won the Marcel A. Desaultels Faculty of Music Concerto Competition in 2017, as well as two trophies in the 2017 Winnipeg Music Festival: the Beryl Ferguson Memorial Trophy and the Lieutenant Governor’s Trophy for best overall performance.

In the summer of 2020, Cameron recorded his debut EP, Music for Vibraphone. This four-piece EP featured music composed by himself, Stephon Davis, Kiara Nathaniel, and Steve Denby, with 100% of proceeds being donated to Black Lives Matter.

As a performer, Cameron has traveled around Canada, to the United States, Cuba, Scotland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine, and Israel. Other performance credits include the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (2017 and 2018), the Oceanic Jazz Orchestra (2017), the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band (2014-present), and the Chai Folk Ensemble (2015-present including recording forthcoming album A Great Light).
