Chicago-born and raised Dominic Flynn began studying the classical guitar after receiving a nylon-string on his eleventh birthday; he continued his studies throughout high school at the Chicago Academy for the Arts, expanding his musical pursuits to include the composition and performance of jazz and classical works, and also won the national YoungArts competition as a soloist in 2014. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a bachelor’s degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Southern California, Flynn also finished 2nd in the Lee Ritenour Six String Theory international competition in 2016. Beyond performance, however, he began to compose more extensively for string quartet, jazz sextet, and solo classical guitar, which culminated in several notable and substantive performances and works. Among these included multiple sets of original compositions at the Blue whale in Los Angeles and the Jazz Showcase in Chicago, as well as a six movement classical guitar suite. As a recipient of the 2018 EuroStrings scholarship, Flynn was able to tour several international festivals and venues across Europe, including concerts in Spain, Paris, London, and Berlin. In addition, he was granted the opportunity to record movements 1 through 3 of his suite with Open Strings Berlin and movement 4 with Siccas. He plans to record movements 5 and 6 of the suite in October with Guitar Salon international, where he is also a regular recording artist. Flynn is a former student of Scott Tennant, Bill Kanengiser, Pepe Romero, and Vince Mendoza, all of whom served as influences and mentors throughout his career as a performer and a composer.
