Dear Fenno,I'm sure you know that you have deeply touched thousands of people's lives with your music and your humanity, but I want you also to know that you that it's not just singers who have been affected by you. I learned so much about the art of conducting from you, especially about how to inspire singers and touch their hearts. Your gifts and talents were vast, and yet you made it all look so easy and natural, and you never forgot that it's all about communicating with people. You are permanently a part of who I am, and a part of so very many others as well. So now, dear and beloved man, thank you and goodbye. Rest easy and know that you have made the world a better place. "Come unto Him, all ye that labour, and He will give you rest."
Rodney Wynkoop, '73
