Vancouver, BC (Top40 Charts/ Decca Label Group) International violin virtuoso David Garrett makes another splash in the U.S. with an upcoming two-night, unprecedented stint on ABC's hit TV show, "Dancing with the Stars." David will be performing on both Monday, April 11th and Tuesday, April 12th, alongside an assembled 46-piece orchestra as part of the show's first-ever classical theme week. "On the edge of stardom," according to USA Today, Garrett is also scheduled to perform on "LIVE! With Regis & Kelly" on Wednesday, April 13th, following the release of his second concert DVD, Rock Symphonies - Live...On a Summer Night (out April 5th).

David Garrett's sophomore album, Rock Symphonies, debuted at No 2 on Billboard's Classical Crossover Chart in July 2010 (only behind Sting), and peaked at No 1. The album continues to be a mainstay of the Top 5, thanks to its new and vibrant interpretations of David's favorite rock anthems by U2, Nirvana, Metallica and Aerosmith to name a few. Garrett also ranked as of one of the top-selling new artists of 2009, including the best-selling new classical artist, and one of the top ten new best-sellers across ALL genres that year.

A favorite on the national TV circuit, the young star most recently appeared on The Today Show in January (his second performance there).

A Public Television superstar, his second headlining concert TV special which was just released on DVD has aired on stations all across the U.S. numerous times. Audiences turned out in droves for his second U.S. concert tour this past February, where David played to music-lovers of all ages in major cities across the country.

David Garrett's personal journey is one for the books. At age eight, he was booked to play as a soloist in front of some of the world's greatest orchestras, including the London Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Russian National Orchestra. At thirteen, he was signed to the most famous and prestigious classical music label, Deutsche Grammophon. Wanting to escape the confines of classical music - without telling his parents - he fled Germany for New York. While living in New York City, he auditioned at the world famous Juilliard music school, was accepted, and studied under the legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman. All while moonlighting as a busboy and model, landing him in the pages of Vogue and the Fashion Week catwalks for Armani. He has since gone on to gain international stardom, topping charts in Europe and selling out concert halls and arenas.

Dubbed, "the fastest violinist in the world," David appeared in the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records, as the fastest-ever performer of the Flight of the Bumblebee, clocking in at a blistering 66 seconds.
