Duo Noire, featuring African-American classical guitarists Thomas Flippin and Christopher Mallett, will make two appearances in Pennsylvania in June.

At 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, they will perform a show called "Spectacular Precision" at Grey Towers N.H.S. in Milford and at 4 p.m.

On Sunday, June 17, they'll repeat the performance at Hawley Silk Mill. Tickets cost $20 for adults; children under 15 are admitted free.

See "Ticket Information," below, for details.

From New York to BeijingFlippin and Mallett use their virtuosic skills to win hearts and minds for classical guitar music, and they often bring genre-bending contemporary compositions into the mix as well.

Graduates of the Yale School of Music, they made a splash with their first album, FIGMENTS, frequently played on WQXR-FM.

Duo Noire has been featured in Chamber Music Magazine and Classical Guitar Magazine, and the duo has won enthusiastic applause for their performances in New York City, Beijing, and many points in between.

Their next album, Tryptych, features contemporary works composed by women and will be available on June 22.

This Spectacular Precision concert will include Baroque pieces by Bach and Scarlatti, and music by Spanish composers Isaac Albeniz and Manuel de Falla, "Libertango" by Astor Piazzolla.

Another piece they will perform, "Hocus-Pocus," was written for them by Grammy nominee Clarice Assad and will be one of the tracks in Tryptych.
