Thomas Kociela was most recently Music Director of the Temecula Valley Youth Symphony (CA), where membership more than doubled over his tenure. The orchestra pushed new boundaries and collaborated with ensembles and musicians ranging from women’s chorus, opera singer, electronic track, flute and saxophone duo, student soloists, as well as guest bands and orchestras — with an increased number of community concerts. He also served as Assistant Conductor of the Temecula Valley Symphony as well as Assistant Music Director of the Community Youth Orchestra of Southern California. 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.
