Praised as "extraordinary" and "a formidable clarinetist" by the New York Times, de Guise-Langlois has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician on major concert stages throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia. She won Astral Artists’ 2011 National Auditions and was awarded first prize in the 2009 Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Competition, the release said.

She has also appeared on the concert series of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Chamber Music Northwest, Boston Chamber Music Society, Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, the Kennedy Center, the Royal Conservatory, and the Ravinia Festival. She currently serves as an adjunct professor of clarinet at Montclair State University.

Lam, described as a “real talent” by the Wall Street Journal, has earned consistent acclaim as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician for her "great style and thrilling virtuosity."

She made her orchestral debut at age 13 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and was a semifinalist in the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition, winner of the 2010 Astral Artists Auditions, silver medalist in the 2009 San Antonio Piano Competition, winner of ABC’s ‘Young Performer of the Year’ Award in the keyboard section and the ABC Quest Competition Viewers’ Choice Award. She holds degrees from the Yale School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music.
