AMS 2009 – Day #1

November 13, 2009 at 9:13 am 2 comments

A quick run-down of yesterday’s events before running out the door to the first session:

The day began with a very pleasant train ride from Boston to Philly–kind of strange to pass through the center of Manhattan without even seeing it.  A quick cab ride to the conference hotel and we’re off.

I always find that Thursday afternoon at AMS is a  nice “calm before the storm.”  So, I took the opportunity to sit in the lobby, catch up with old friends and colleagues, and book up my lunches and dinners for the remainder of the weekend.

As a result, I only made it to two papers: Dave Paul and John Z. McKay.  Both were well delvired and received presentations (more on particular aspects of individual papers in a later post).

The best part of the day was definately the Amusicology reception.  Thanks to all who came by!  It was really great to see everyone, especially the bloggers: 2’23”, ZeitschichtenThoughtLights, and one new one whose name escapes me in the pre-coffee phase of my day…I’ll add it when I remember it!  We’ll do it again next year for sure.

See you round the conference!

    I’m sorry I couldn’t make the amusicology part on Thursday night. I was busily recovering from a 24 hour head cold.
