From Dr. Kristie Foell

I do indeed have a Fenno story to share! During my one and only year in the Glee Club, as a Yale senior, Fenno accompanied me on the piano for Reger's "Es blueht ein Roeslein' rosenrot" at a service at Battell Chapel. I don't really remember how this came about, as Fenno was not obligated to play at the church (as far as I know); but I had just returned from studying abroad in Germany and fancied myself quite the lieder expert, so maybe I asked him!

I'll never forget that, after we finished the song, Fenno spontaneously jumped up from the piano and gave me a big hug! That's how happy he was to make music, and how happy he made others with his music-making. He will be missed
