Hello to the Heath Family,


Please accept my condolences. Fenno’s passing is indeed a sad moment but his legacy is one of joy. I sang under his direction for three years in the YGC at Yale, ‘followed in his musical footsteps’ in both the Spizzwinks(?) and the Whiffs. Fenno’s commitment to choral music, his extraordinary musicianship, his ‘magical hands’, his striving for perfection (and his wry smile and tolerance when we goofed),  are memories that I will treasure. More importantly, his music will be  performed for generations to come.


Yours truly,


Stewart Cole, Yale 1960
