    A native of Detroit, Michigan, Gabe started his violin studies at the age of three and has performed and taught across the USA and abroad. He founded the music festival PhoenixPhest, and is a founding member of The Oblivion Project. His infectious energy, creativity and breadth of musical proficiency extends through contemporary and experimental music, jazz and tango, as well as traditional classical music, and he has released seven CDs.

He’s also a featured vocalist and pianist with larger ensembles!
