Welcome to the new site/performance announcement!

Greetings, everyone! I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the new and improved omarthomas.com! I revealed this was coming on my Facebook pages, both my personal page and my ensemble page. I also promised an announcement, which I'd like to share with you now....

The Omar Thomas Large Ensemble will be performing at the 2015 BeanTown Jazz Festival on Saturday, September 26th....AND we will be featuring Grammy-nominated jazz vibraphonist and composer Stefon Harris! I first met Stefon at a jazz composition symposium held at the University of South Florida seven years ago. It was clear that we shared a very similar musical perspective and philosophy. It's an immeasurable honor to be able to have him perform with the OTLE!

I am currently working on a brand new chart which will be premiered at this festival! I will discuss this in greater detail in a future blog post.

I thank you all so very much for your continued support, and for so graciously lending me your ear. We'll connect very soon!
