Tom Duprey

Tom Duprey has been actively playing trumpet in the Boston area since 1986 when he moved here to receive his Master’s degree in Jazz Studies/Composition at the New England Conservatory of Music. Since then he has performed in many regional, college and downtown musical theater productions. He has also performed for many star acts such as Dionne Warwick, Johnny Mathis, Robert Goulet, Tommy Tune and various other artists. He has played trumpet for the past eight years with the Boston Gay Man’s Chorus. These performances include world premieres at Symphony Hall and the Cutler Majestic Theatre, as well as performances at Jordan Hall and the Boston Pavillion. He can also be heard on two of the group’s CDs. Duprey’s latest musical project is playing cornet with TickleJuice, featuring the music of James Merenda. The group is an exploration of improvisation utilizing Merenda’s compositions as the material of inspiration. This is Duprey’s second A.R.T./OBERON production, having just finished playing trumpet and accordion for Cabaret this past fall. He’s totally pumped to play Prometheus Bound with its excitement, strong and timeless message and the challenge of playing no less than six instruments! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with such wonderfully talented individuals to put this show together from the ground up.
