Bass trombonist Dave Hall has been performing with The Santa Fe Symphony since 1990. Before moving to the Southwest, he freelanced in Chicago, performing often with the Chicago Symphony and Lyric Opera of Chicago. Earlier in his career, he performed with Delaware Symphony Orchestra, San Antonio Symphony, and Baltimore Symphony, and many other groups. In addition to his work with The Santa Fe Symphony, local music lovers can also hear him during New Mexico Philharmonic concerts.

In 1995, Dave presented a master class on the orchestral low brass section, playing at the International Trombone Festival. In 1999, he performed at this event once again, this time as a member of Skyline Brass. In addition to his mentors, Charles Vernon and Edward Kleinhammer, Dave studied with Robert Streckfuss, Jay Hildebrandt, Frank Crisafulli, and Arnold Jacobs. He is a clinician for the Edwards/Getzen Instrument Company and teaches privately in Albuquerque.

In his spare time, Dave enjoys reading, film, futzing with computers, and poker.
