Her passion to perform has also led to opening for US touring artist, Kevin Devine, and a performance at Canadian Music Week.
Danilyon has given back to the music therapy community, performing at the Canadian Music Therapy Trust fund, International March 4 Music Therapy – a charity sponsored by George Stroumboulopoulos.
