Forever Fenno


Thank you for the wonderful gift of allowing me to be your assistant conductor for a year. Having the opportunity to conduct at Yale and then throughout Germany and Scandinavia was an extraordinary experience, one that I will never forget. Yale was not always a friendly place, and it meant more than I can say to have a home in the chorus. I have continued to sing under many conductors since my time at Yale, and I often find myself thinking back to Fennoisms that I wish they knew ("This is what the composer really meant to do"; "Break your face"; "God
meant it to be a mixed chorus."). Although I am no longer in touch with the many people with whom I sang while I was in the Glee Club, I am so
pleased to have this opportunity to join my voice to the many voices on this website. Together, we make a silent chorus, but one that should still resonate with the joy that you brought to all of us.

With warmest affection -

Andy Elfenbein
