A Tribute to the Music of a Charlie Brown Christmas
December 14, 2019 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: Campbell Recital Hall - Map Link
Back by popular demand, we’re proud to present a tribute to Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack album to A Charlie Brown Christmas, the 1965 holdiay classic. Join SJW for a show that will warm your heart and put you in the holiday spirit, featuring jazz pianist Glen Pearson (Count Basie), bassist Ruth Davies (Charles Brown, Elvin Bishop), and drummer Lorca Hart (Freddie Hubbard, Calvin Keys, Stanley Jordan, Craig Handy). Originally broadcast in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas is hands-down one of the most beloved specials in TV history. Commissioned by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, Vince Guaraldi composed and performed the timeless contemporary jazz score which wonderfully reflects both the spirit of the legendary Peanuts characters and the Christmas season. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get the season off to a Charlie Brown start!
