FVA District MPA - February 2008

Lyrics

This is the 2008 FVA District MPA performance by the Cypress Chorale. This is a delightful piece based upon a poem by James Leigh Hunt. The poet reflects on a fleeting moment in a manner at once lighthearted and poignant. The "Jenny" of the poem was Jane Welsh Carlyle, wife of fellow writer Thomas Carlyle, who upon hearing from Hunt about his recovery from a long illness, uncharacteristically leaped up and kissed him. The poem's narrator avoids bitterness by reflecting on something bright and memorable that happened to him, which in its way overshadows the more mundane miseries attendant on much of his life. Witty and defiant, the poet asserts that whatever else might have occurred, he mattered when Jenny kissed him. The accompanist on this piece is senior, Danielle Barnes.

Cabaret Postponed!

As Hurricane Irma bears down on Fort Myers, we are going to postpone the cabaret so that families can make preparations for the storm or evacuate. We will look for a make-up date soon. Be safe and take this threat seriously.
