AMS 2009 Preview
As I sit in the country’s first LEED-certified Airport terminal, (with free WiFi by our benevolent sponsor, Google), I though I would give a quick rundown of some events that come highly recommended at the Philadelphia Conference:
1. The Amusicology Party! (in case you haven’t heard already)
2. The McClary/Del Tredici Interview Friday Night, part of the LGBTQ Study Group. If you really like it, I think that J & J Lubrano is brokering the sale of Del Tredici’s manuscripts, for the truly enterprising collector.
3. Sundry Harvard grad students presenting papers: Evan MacCarthy, Ali Monchick, John McKay. Sorry if I’m forgetting anyone.
4. Seda’s Concert! See previous post.
5. Finally, Phil Gentry has an excellent post that gives a not-for-tourists flyover of logistics at the conference.
