For the Joy You Have Given

To Fenno and the Heath Family,

Thirty-seven years ago, the Yale Glee Club marched on stage at the Kennedy Center Opera House and sang an ear-opening concert that convinced me then a high school sophomore in love with singing that I belonged at Yale. Three years later, I found myself in that self-same group, making magical music with the incomparable Fenno, and through him, being initiated into the delightful, enriching legacy of choral music at Yale.

How do I thank someone who has given me such bountiful gifts my inaugural encounters with the B Minor Mass and the Mozart Requiem; haunting and delicious arrangements of the great spirituals; the chance to sing in the Alps and the Andes, in the capitals of Europe and the fields of El Salvador; and, best of all, dozens of friendships formed through the Glee Club? The best thanks is to keep singing, in joy and gratitude for Fennos inspiring, infectious example.

May harmony ever surround you, Fenno.

Love to Carol and the Heath Family.

David Dodson, 77
