Thanks for the Memories

Dear Fenno --

What I remember most is that you made the extraordinary ordinary, and that is a great thing. You took a bunch of kids from who knows where and exposed us to the kinds of experiences that most people never even dream of. Sing at Carnegie Hall? Have private sessions with Robert Shaw? Do a concert with Victor Borge? Travel the world and sing as the Berlin Wall was crumbling down? All in a day's work for the YGC. And it was fun, not intimidating.

Besides the wonderful musical gifts, it gave so many people the poise and the confidence to go forth and aspire to and hopefully accomplish great things. This spirit lives on the the Yale Alumni Chorus, which also makes the extraordinary ordinary. I can only hope I can inspire just one person on to greatness as you did for so many.

Thank you and Godspeed.

Lily Giordano '90
