Thies Roorda studied at the Royal Conservatory, The Hague with Paul Verhey and in the US with the renowned Geoffrey Gilbert. After a long-standing orchestral career (he is emeritus flautist of the Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra), he now dedicates himself to niches in the flute repertoire that are of particular interest to him. His recordings of works from around the turn of the 20th century, such as the complete works for flute by Sigfrid Karg-Elert, have received critical acclaim.

Several composers have dedicated works to him, including Isang Yun and Jean Françaix. Of the latter, he recorded the Divertimento for flute and piano accompanied by the composer himself. In addition to this, he has also recorded works by Giacinto Scelsi and Rudolf Escher. Thies Roorda is professor of flute at the Royal Conservatory, The Hague. He regularly gives masterclasses worldwide and he teaches at his studio in Tuscany.
