Dear Fenno:

 

You may not remember me, but I sang in the Glee Club from 1975-78, and was a music major, Janne Newland (I now go by Juanita Newland Ulloa).

Your spirit, both in the Glee Club and in conducting class was always masterful, spirited and elegant. I remember I was too scared to conduct, actually, but I greatly admired you.

I  am now a Latin American mariachi singer/songwriter and Professor of Voice and Ethnomusicology at Texas State University. I came back to Yale and sang a solo in Glee Club at a reunion 3 or so years ago.  You said it was quite  a novel sound for you.  I know my style is not traditional Glee Club sound, but it was fun anyway!

 

I am sure your influence is part of what has given me a wonderful music career, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Plus you are very handsome!  I will always remember you.

 

My best to you and your family,

Juanita Ulloa
