R. Thomas Renner, saxophones, clarinet, and flute. As a Bay area musician, Renner is a One-Man-Woodwind-Carnival. By day he is the Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator and the senior music director for Tracy Unified School District, but by night he enjoys the jazz performance scene from the coast to the central valley. He holds an undergraduate degree in jazz (and in fact studied in the same program as Kurt Elling), and currently studies with Dann Zinn of CSU East Bay. His musical experience also includes film-score composition for Hard-Sell Productions in Hollywood and New York.
