Our annual holiday concert series 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) offers four opportunities to enjoy the music that the holidays can’t live without: The music of A Charlie Brown Christmas!

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. Get the season off to a Charlie Brown start!
