David Benoit Christmas Tribute to Charlie Brown
Get in the Christmas Spirit with this special tribute to Charlie Brown at The Tower Theater. In 1965, the first-ever Peanuts animated special took place. It was a landmark event and it was the start of a tradition that would continue for years to come. Now, almost 50 years later, contemporary jazz piano legend, David Benoit, is paying tribute to this incredible piece of entertainment history with his Christmas show, featuring music from the Charlie Brown special.
This inspirational concert includes the classic music of Vince Guaraldi along with Charlie Brown Christmas originals from David Benoit, who took over the helm as music composer for the new Charlie Brown Christmas TV Specials more than a decade ago. The show can include the young voices of a children’s choir, which serves as a wonderful way of getting the local community involved. Also featured is vocalist Sara Gazarek along with David Benoit’s rock-steady band featuring David Hughes on bass and Jamey Tate on drums. The heart-warming show is sure to get the audience in that Charlie Brown Christmas Spirit and bring out the “kid” in all of us this holiday season.
