On December 9 at Maine East High School, the Orchestra will present An Irish Christmas with Irish dancers and singer Kathy Cowan, who specialized in Irish song and has performed with orchestras all over North America. The program will include the Armed Forces Salute, an audience favorite, along with the haunting and contemplative Williams’ Fantasia on the Theme by Thomas Tallis, a work written by two composers working centuries apart.
