His solo appearances with orchestra include the Philadelphia Orchestra, the St. Louis Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Seattle Symphony, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Handel & Haydn and Pro Arte Chamber Orchestras of Boston, and the Blossom Festival Orchestra among many others. Mr. Thomas has played recitals in virtually every state in the U.S. including the cities of New York, Washington D.C., Boston, and Los Angeles as well as numerous concerts in Europe and Asia.

In great demand as a chamber music collaborator, Ronald Thomas is also the co-founder and artistic director of the Boston Chamber Music Society with whom he appears regularly and has produced a number of highly acclaimed recordings. He has also appeared with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center both at Alice Tully Hall and on tour. Other chamber music appearances include the Seattle Chamber Music Festival, the Bravo! Colorado Chamber Music Festival, the Spoleto Festival, the Blossom Festival, the Portland Chamber Music Festival and the Yale at Norfolk Festival as well as the festivals of Dubrovnik, Edinburgh and Amsterdam. Mr. Thomas is the artistic director of Chestnut Hill Concerts of Madison, CT and is a member of the Players in Residence committee and the Board of Overseers at Bargemusic in New York City. While he was member of the Boston Musica Viva and the Aeolian Chamber Players he premiered countless new works by including those by Gunther Schuller, Michael Colgrass, Ellen Zwillich, Donald Erb, William Bolcom, and William Thomas McKinley.
