Thank you will never be enough

Dear Fenno-
Even though I didn't get to sing with you while you were the official director of the YGC, I have had the pleasure of singing with you a number of times through the years at various reunions and events, and I have heard so many (wild and hilarious) stories about you from David Connell and various Yale Alumni Chorus members that I feel like I *was* in one of your Glee Clubs!
You are a legend in the Glee Club family-- not only for your musical gifts and passion (and fabulous quotes from the podium), but for your charismatic personality, strength of leadership, and caring mentorship of so many hundreds of glee clubbers.  You are an inspiration to us all-- those who had the privilege of singing under your baton, and those future glee clubbers who will come to know you through the epic stories passed down through the generations.
You touched my life even in the few personal encounters we shared, and through the many songs and arrangements you gifted us through the years, and I am grateful for that.  "Thank you" will never be enough.  With respect and gratitude,
Julianne Parolisi, '02
