The reception of James Hall’s junior trombone recital is set to feature some of the most delectable baked goods Lawrence has seen since Will Smith’s senior tuba recital reception two years ago. With a menu that will feature over six types of cookies, this reception really has people talking. “Yeah, I’ll be at the reception,” said senior trombonist Kim Maenle. “I wouldn’t miss James’ reception for the world. He’s worked so hard on it!” Indeed, Hall has spent nearly a full year preparing for his reception. “There’s no room for mistakes in this business,” says Hall. “There are so few opportunities for trombone players as it is. I can’t screw up my one chance to show people what I’ve got.” James Hall’s post-recital reception will be held April 9 around 1:30 p.m.
