Society for American Music Annual Meeting 2009 – Day 1

March 18, 2009 at 9:53 pm 2 comments

So Ryan and I came in on the same plane to Denver (which was not planned) and promptly experimented with the effect of a beer and altitude on mindset (which was). That’s right folks, the Sonnecks are all back together and it is time for a good old SAM meeting, Denver Style.

Some highlights:

You should go to Ryan’s paper, which is bright eyed and bushy tailed at 10:30 tomorrow morning (Thursday!) in the Denver Ballroom of the Hotel. For some reason, he is on an all Ives panel, and I am on a panel with Sue Neimoyer’s Gershwin paper. Go figure.

I’d also like to shamelessly plug my colleagues. The illustrious Glenda Goodman, who is speaking at 4.30 on Thursday, and William Bares, who is speaking at 10.30 on Friday. Interestingly, Glenda, William and I are all in the “matchless” room. That is a lot to live up to.

For those of you wondering where to eat, the 16th street Mall has many nice places and is a pleasant stroll. I was not the only musicologist out there in a daze taking it in.

Last, but certainly not least, all students should note that the SAM Student Forum Meeting is taking place at 5:30 on Friday, prior to the Student Forum Dinner. It isn’t on the program, but it is happening.

    p.s.: I will buy exactly one beer for the first person to correctly identify which former SAM president’s birthday was today.

    I know. Do I get a beer?
