We devise a procedure for calculating boson realizations of canonical basis-states of SU$(n)$ for arbitrary $n$. We employ our boson realization to calculate Wigner $\mathcal{D}$-functions of SU$(n)$ in the canonical Gelfand-Tsetlin basis and connect these functions to outputs from multi-photon interferometry.
