Thomas Flippin


Thomas Flippin (guitar) is an original and versatile voice in the world of contemporary music: premiering new works with his pioneering classical guitar ensemble, Duo Noire; performing avant-garde theorbo as part of Alicia Hall Moran’s Motown Project; playing electric guitar in Heartbeat Opera’s The Extinctionist; and plucking the banjo in the American Repertory Theater’s The Black Clown. Flippin’s playing has been hailed as “profoundly enjoyable” and “spectacularly precise” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Concert highlights include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, National Sawdust, The Metro­politan Museum of Art, and Beijing’s Peking Univer­sity. He is a graduate of the Yale School of Music.
