Welcome to the home page of Dwight Thomas, Retired Principal Timpanist (1980 - 2017) of the Omaha Symphony Orchestra. The instrument you see above is a Light Mark XI American Dresden timpano, made by the American Drum Company in Denver, Colorado.


In addition to my orchestral playing, I am also a computer consultant (Macintosh only!!!)

I also teach timpani/percussion, and Finale (a music notation program) ...


Here I am with another one of my friends...
