Thanks, Fenno


You have been the standard by which I've judged all choral conductors
since my Yale days, and nobody else ever quite measured up. It was a
great honor, inspiration and privilege to sing with you , and it was
wonderful to reprise it every five years at the Glee Club reunions in
Woolsey Hall. There'll be a huge void at the next reunion without you.

Thanks so much for what you did for generations of us.

  1. Dear Fenno, Carol and all the family,

    I am so very sad to hear that Fenno will be leaving us. He was like a father to me during my time at Yale, and I will never forget what he did for me. He taught us all to believe in ourselves...and to forgive our own mistakes.

    I'm home these days with a newborn daughter and a 2-year-old toddler who seems destined to sing and dance her way through life. I will do my best to teach them a fraction of what Fenno taught me.

    My prayers are with you.

    Love, love, love,
    Anne Johnsos
