The head of the department spoke to a few composers after class yesterday about our opinions of the three faculty candidates, although the decision had already been made. Although we weren't supposed to be told who was hired, it became entirely apparent that they've hired Dr. Broening of the University of Richmond, with Dr. Callendar of Northern Illinois University as a backup. It was mentioned that the race was extremely close and that the final decision came down to teaching experience and gut instincts on intelligence. It's interesting that they wouldn't want the best composer to fill the position, but I guess the committee has different priorities when it's composed largely of theorists, rather than composers. Both of the two candidates are agreeable, of course; the finalists just weren't ordered in the same order as I would have expected them to be.

I think my summer plans are fairly codified now. After an exam on April 23, I'll drive up to Blacksburg on the 24th and spend some time there as my "vacation". Then I'll settle into my dual residency in northern Virginia and start working full-time on May 1. I'll stop working on August 2, and return to Tallahassee some time in the following week. That will give me about two weeks to take care of residency, help people move, and get settled in before classes start on August 26.

I've posted a few recently scanned pictures on the Photos page -- mainly some pictures from Pool Table day, and a few extras from more recently.
