As of 6:45am I was formally asked to become Chair of the Musicology Division, and accepted. This has been the plan (mine and the bosses') for a long time, ever since I was hired in 2000 with the mandate to "modernize the department"--and which I worked my ass off to accomplish, but it's a relief, a validation, and an inspiration to have the day finally arrive. I am proud of what we have accomplished and confident that we have laid the foundation for a great future.
I am humbled beyond measure, and grateful beyond words, for their generosity to me.
Now playing: Berrogüeto - Bailador (voc)
