As a performer, Thomas spent seven years as a substitute musician with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on trombone, euphonium, and bass trumpet — performing under conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Pierre Boulez, Riccardo Muti, Michael Tilson Thomas, David Robertson, and Sir Mark Elder. While in Chicago, he was Assistant Conductor at the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras (CYSO) and served as the CYSO’s Pathways Neighborhood Ensembles Music Director. As an Artist Teacher at the Chicago High School for the Arts Thomas directed the wind ensemble and taught music theory. He attended the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University where he majored in trombone performance and music education. Thomas currently studies conducting at the New England Conservatory with Charles Peltz and has pursued additional studies and masterclasses with Robert Franz, Victor Yampolsky, Cristian Măcelaru, Erin Freeman, Markand Thakar, and Donald Schleicher.

History

The Indian Hill Music Youth Orchestra (formerly Nashoba Youth Orchestra at Indian Hill Music) was founded through the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, Massachusetts as The Nashoba Youth Orchestra in 2004 by a dedicated group of professional musicians, music educators, performers, and parents who shared a common vision for a high-quality youth orchestra located in the Nashoba Valley region which would serve the needs of motivated musicians throughout the region. After ten successful years as an independent youth orchestra, in 2014, the orchestra became a part of IHM’s program offerings.
