I am planning to attend a concert in NYC, so I am posting this in advance. Will update later.

Update: I had a succesful day in NYC. I met up with a former student and we went to a concert at Le Poisson Rouge. After the concert, I presented my recordings to the pianist, who is well known as a new music specialist. She shared an anecdote with me about one of the composers. I also purchased a couple of her CDs. I met the owner of the record label, for whom I had written liner notes for a DVD release. He said that release should be coming out later this year (2 years after I wrote the notes under intense deadline pressure, but that's the way it goes). There are moments like these when, in NYC and other major cities, I continue to cultivate my professional connections. Despite the way I feel in my department, perhaps I'm not just nothing and nobody after all.
