One of my happiest memories

I have so many happy memories from singing with Fenno, but what stands out in my mind most was his calling my room to talk to me after my audition and saying, “We would be honored to have you sing with us.” The honor was mine, of course, but looking back at the call as a mentor and father now myself, what an extraordinary way to talk to a kid, basically, treating him as an adult, a musician, and a peer all at once. He set the tone from the outset, and made me want to live up to the extraordinary standards of Fenno and YGC…after that call it would never have crossed my mind to be late for a rehearsal or unprepared for a concert.

  1. Andy, that's so nice to hear. We are all tapping away at laptops at Fenno's bedside by the light of a little Christmas tree. And you are part of our Virtual Vigil tonight.
