The risk paid off. Gordon was the only violist selected out of 18 applicants from around the globe and performed in many venues in Germany, Hong Kong, Paris and Switzerland before returning home to Boston.

When she is not leading educational workshops for kids, she's as much an entrepreneur as artist, as Co-Artistic Director and violist for Castle of our Skins, a "concert and educational series devoted to celebrating Black Artistry through music."
In 2015, Gordon was awarded the St. Botolph Emerging Artist Award and still strives for change within her own community. Gordon performs regularly with Boston's Callithumpium Consort, NYC's ECCE Ensemble, and Providence's Ensemble Parallex, and is founder and violist of Sound Energy.
