Watch the Glen Pearson Trio perform a special holiday webcast of

A Tribute to the Music from A Charlie Brown Christmas

Join SJW for a toe-tapping online 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 chance to get the season off to a Charlie Brown start!

We’re presenting two online webcasts of this great performance:

  • Premiere: Saturday, December 12, 7:00 p.m.
  • Matinee: Sunday, December 13, 2:00 p.m., with live artist chat

The recorded webcasts will be available for viewing  until Friday, December 18. Click here to view it.

The matinee on Sunday, December 13 will be a re-broadcast of the Saturday, December 12 premiere, and the performers will be in the chat room for you to interact with during the broadcast.

Soundcheck with Glen Pearson. This is special behind-the-music interview with pianist Glen Pearson will be available for you to enjoy at any time during the weekend, and until Friday, December 18. Glen will talk about the history of the original production and recording of Vince Guaraldi performing the music, as well as reveal what went into the years of additional music production for subsequent Peanuts animated shows.
