A talented harmonica musician, Gordon was Champion of the Asia Pacific Harmonica Festival in 2012 and first prize winner at the 2014 International Concerto Competition in New York. Earlier this year, he formed a trio with He Liyan (piano), a graduate of the Master of Music programme at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, and Nancy Wong (flute), a graduate of the Master of Music (Performance Teaching) programme at the University of Melbourne. The trio had its debut performance on “Music of Friends” on RTHK Radio 4 and received a very positive response. In addition to organising a concert at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre next year to feature Gordon’s award-winning pieces, the trio is planning to release an album.
