He went on to complete both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at the Juilliard School, followed by an Artist’s Diploma from USC. Choosing to remain in Southern California, Thomas enjoys the variety that being an L.A. musician brings. In addition to the Long Beach Symphony, Thomas has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony, New West Symphony, Santa Barbara Symphony, and The Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. He has also performed and recorded with notable pop artists including Andrea Bocelli, Taylor Swift, Josh Groban, Sting and Peter Gabriel.
