You may not know it yet, but you are going to love Kaitlyn Lusk. She first sang with the Baltimore Symphony at age 14. A year later, she was chosen as featured vocal soloist for composer Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings Symphony suite. If you're a Tolkien geek, her rendition of "Into the West," which she performed at the Grammy Honors in New York, will move you to Valinorean tears. Now she's deploying her gorgeous soprano in support of a program of Irish classics, including "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" and the soul-withering gut punch of "Danny Boy." Joining her are tap dancer Trent Kowalik, uilleann piper Andrew Thomson, and the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra. Kowalik won a Tony Award for his work in Billy Elliot the Musical. Fair play to ya!
