David Benoit- A Christmas Tribute to Charlie Brown
December 21, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm PST$45
Celebrate the holidays with a Carpenter Center favorite—an evening of cherished Vince Guaraldi tunes from A Charlie Brown Christmas! Five-time Grammy nominee and jazz pianist David Benoit is joined by a special guest, the Grammy nominated jazz singer Sara Gazarek, along with the All-American Boys Chorus and the Pacific Vision Youth Symphony, in a must-see show featuring the beloved holiday songs that have charmed generations.
Since its debut, Charles M. Schulz’s A Charlie Brown Christmas has been a must-see holiday classic for Peanuts fans of all ages—including for David Benoit. Hearing the soundtrack in 1965 was the defining moment when a young David Benoit decided he wanted to one day play like Vince Guaraldi. Called Guaraldi’s heir, Benoit has spread the joy of Guaraldi’s classic songs for more than two decades with numerous performances on Peanuts television specials and movies, including The Peanuts Movie (2015).
