There were performances by The Yale Glee Club, The Yale Alumni Chorus, The Whiffenpoofs of 2009, The SLOT's, and The University Glee Club of New Haven. A magnificent, and humbling, tribute.

So many Yale legends fade away or say goodbye and continue their lives elsewhere.  Fenno continued to be a presence.  My favorite songs from YGC - Fern Hill, The Lamb - songs that are so part of my consciousness that I dream of them, and can be uplifted for a full day when I wake up humming them - thank you for those.  And thank you for my glimpses of glee club history - guest conducting here and there, leading us in song at YGC reunions, and conducting rehearsals during my college reunion.  I read other folks' posts on the blog, and I have my own memories - the tiny tugs to urge us to tune, warm smiles when the chords finally clicked into place - thank you (all) for reaching beyond the generations of glee clubbers who were directly your charge, and continuing to give of yourself.  Thank you.
