This Lee Honors College Thesis consisted of approximately 180 hours of preparation of performance materials, research of compositions to be performed, and composition of program notes. The recital was held on Sunday March 16, 2014 at 5:00 pm in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. Works performed included solos for trombone accompanied by student pianist J.J. Treadway and a trio featuring student trumpeter Bonni Lee Beebe. Repertoire included works for trombone by von Weber, Hindemith, Blacher, Jørgensen, and Šulek. Works performed were composed during the Romantic and Modern eras. Approximately 50 audience members were present, including members of the thesis committee. Program notes were distributed to the audience members upon arrival to the venue. This recital satisfied the final performance requirement for the completion of a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Trombone Performance. Rebecca Haines is an undergraduate student of Dr. Steven Wolfinbarger at Western Michigan University.
