He has also recieved many honors throughout his life including the NSOA(National Student Orchestra Award) and NCA(National Choral Award) awards.

He was also heard on NPR station WJFF for an hour long interview in 2010 featuring himself and jazz guitarist Carl Storckman. That same year, Gabe traveled to play in the Bach Around the Clock Festival in New Orleans, LA with the Allegro Orchestra. Gabe continues to make appearances throughout the five boroughs and the Tri-State area. He has performed/recorded with artists such as Anne Hampton Calloway, Sherrie Maricle, John Feeny, Adam Nussbaum, Christa Benion, Steven Reineke, Robert Sabin, Jermaine Paul, Tao Seeger-Rodriguez and Barrage.
