Stephen Campbell, '67

Though sadly I did not sing at Yale, I have vivid memories of Fenno's conducting. I think the first time I saw him in action - the first time I heard the Glee Club - was during the Christmas holidays of our freshman year. The Glee Club was touring and did a concert in  
Baltimore. I went with my family. It was only the second time they had experienced Yale - the first being when they delivered me to Phelps Gate in September. Needless to say, the concert was breathtaking. None of us had ever heard choral singing like that. I was so proud of being  
a Yale Man. Years later, when I finally did start singing, I think it was partly because of the memory of watching Fenno and hearing the Yale Glee Club.
