A Charlie Brown Christmas
Sunday, December 17th, 2017
Jason Frederick Cinematic Trio
A Charlie Brown Christmas:
The Music of Vince Guaraldi
Start the holidays with this extra special evening of Christmas music, along with some seasonal treats and multimedia, performed by film and TV animation composer Jason Frederick.
Anyone who watched the Peanuts TV series in the 60s and 70s will be familiar with the jazz soundtrack that always accompanied the classic cartoons. The pint-sized pianist that was Vince Guaraldi, who scored more than a dozen Peanuts TV specials, is probably most famous for pulling off the ultimate musical sleight of hand - he made parents and kids bob their heads and tap their feet along to jazz without knowing they were even listening to it.
On the night of its TV premiere, A Charlie Brown Christmas was seen by almost half of the American population - something like 15 million homes - on its way into the holiday canon. It also made Snoopy one of the most visible and beloved characters in American popular culture.
Paying homage to both the genius of composer Vince Guaraldi (also notable for penning the Grammy-winning Cast Your Fate To The Wind) and creator Charles M. Schulz, the evening features the full performance of the music from the classic 1965 animated television special, plus other festive favourites in the style of the Vince Guaraldi Trio.
An absolute must for jazz lovers and fans of Peanuts, no matter what your age!
Jason Frederick (Piano), Scott Wheeler (Double Bass) and Dan Mullins (Drums).
Tickets £14 / £12 Concessions. Family Ticket only £10! (2 adults/2 children)
Doors open 7.00pm. 1st Set 7.30pm
