Thomé studied guitar in her native Frankfurt, earning an Artist Diploma with Distinction in 2011. In August 2013, she moved to Los Angeles and began postgraduate work at USC, working with William Kanengiser. She is a frequent collaborator with Mitchell.
Thomé was featured in the L.A. Philharmonic’s performance of John Adams’s clarinet concerto, Gnarly Buttons, performing on guitar, banjo and mandolin, with the composer conducting. The guitarist is equally at home in the pop world and is featured on the album Black is the Color with the band Arven, which enjoyed a long run on the German pop music charts.

This program includes solo music for guitar by John Dowland and Heinz Werner Henze; songs for soprano and guitar by Franz Schubert, J.S. Bach and Benjamin Britten; and the popular “Fandango” quintet for guitar and string quartet by Luigi Boccherini.
