Not only has Gideon performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Prague Swing Jazz Festival and throughout the US, but his music is also frequently heard on NPR’s All Things Considered.
His creative workshops at schools, colleges and music camps, as well as his tunebook, New Music For Cello, has inspired cello and violin students and teachers from coast to coast to perform his music by their own cello choirs and string ensembles. Gideon’s original composed music has been commissioned for film, theatre and dance.
His recent project has been performing live soundtracks for classic silent films. Gideon has 12 original CDs to his credit and has performed on dozens of albums by other musicians. www.cellobop.com
