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 year after year. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is a tradition enjoyed around the world by fans of all ages. Now, over 50 years later, Contemporary Jazz Piano Legend, David Benoit,  is paying tribute to this incredible piece of entertainment history, with a “David Benoit Christmas Tribute to Charlie Brown.”

This inspirational tribute concert features the classic music of Vince Guaraldi along with “Charlie Brown Christmas” originals from Benoit, who took over the helm as music composer for the new Charlie Brown Christmas TV Specials more than a decade ago, as well as classics from Benoit’s illustrious career as a Multi- Grammy Nominated Solo Artist.

The show also features the young voices of a local children’s choir, which serves as a wonderful way of getting the local community involved. The heart-warming show is sure to get the audience in that Christmas Spirit and bring out the ‘kid’ in all of us this holiday season.

Tickets cost $40 in advance or $45 day of show.
