Post for the Fenno Blog


My thoughts are with you, Carol and your dear family. I have so many treasured memories of our time together, which I think about often. How can I not? You helped shape who I am. For what you created in Hendrie Hall was so much more than mere notes and music. It was the most important classroom at Yale for learning about life. We learned how to work together, how to harmonize. Through your shining example, we learned how to lead. We saw in you the fulfillment that comes from professionally pursuing one’s passions, no matter what they may be (though perhaps none so sublime as the life lived in music.) We were privileged to create something magnificent and beautiful that could touch and transport other human beings– can there be anything more exhiliarating than that? You helped us realize the JOY (the joy, the joy, the joy) of belonging. Belonging to a community, to something bigger than ourselves.

Fenno, you inspired us. You still do. You always will.
