Arizona State University, part 1

Not much to report yet, but I’ve just arrived here in Tempe, Arizona. (For those of you not familiar with Tempe, it’s right next to Phoenix.)

Perhaps not the best planning to travel on the last day of the Thanksgiving weekend. Although only one flight was delayed, my total travel time — door to door — was 12 hours. Yes, 12 hours from the time I hailed a cab in NY until I reached the hotel in Tempe.

Needless to say, I’m beat. Fortunately, AEJ made me a delicious turkey sandwich to eat on the plane, and that made the whole day a lot more pleasant. She even sent along a great big slice of pecan pie. All that was missing was cream corn.

Now it’s time to quickly unpack and get to bed. Tomorrow, I’ll meet with the composition students at ASU. I’m really excited about that.

More soon…

Oh — one more thing. If you’re in the Tempe area, the ASU performance of “Redline Tango” with Gary Hill conducting is on Thursday evening. If you’re in the New York City area on Thursday, though, you can catch a performance of “Juba,” performed by the Alvin Ailey Dance Company at City Center!

First it was 6 performances in 10 days, now it's 2 performances in one day! You, my friend, are being performed at a rate of 730 concerts a year. Take that, John Adams! ;)
