Gabriel Boyers was President of the Professional Autograph Dealers Association from 2013 to 2018 and consults and authenticates autographs for institutions and collectors worldwide and is an autograph authenticator for JSA Authentication services. As a violinist, Boyers has been praised for his “rock steady finger and bow technique” by New Music Connoisseur Magazine and has been described by The Boston Phoenix as an “elegant, accomplished player” and as one of "the most talented young string players in town." He performs regularly with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Odyssey Opera, Emanuel Music and other ensembles, and as recitalist and chamber musician, Gabriel has been heard at numerous festivals and halls (Sandor Vegh Institute- Prague, Banff Centre for the Arts- Canada, Vail Valley Bravo Music Festival, Troy Savings Bank Music Hall etc.). Gabriel has participated in many world-premiere performances, including as concertmaster for the Carnegie Hall premiere of "Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra" with DJ Radar, as well as the premiere of “For Lou” by John Luther Adams, which he also recorded for New World Records and collaborated with composer Lee Hyla to develop “Cadenza,” a work for solo violin based on portions of composer’s Violin Concerto. With pianist Keith Kirchoff, Boyers gave the world premiere of Leo Ornstein’s 3rd Sonata for Violin and Piano, a newly discovered work approximately 90 years old.
