Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative is hosting a special holiday show, “The Music of Vince Guaraldi,” to pay tribute to the man behind the beloved piano score for the popular Charlie Brown/Peanuts TV specials and movies, including the seasonal favorite “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown.”

The show will take place Dec. 10 from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at the Blumenthal Booth Playhouse, located at 130 N. Tryon Street in Founders Hall. The night will include a catered pre-reception and silent auction from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit JAI’s Jazz Academy and performance-based programs.

An ensemble of regional musicians and vocalists, including Charlotte pianists Chad Lawson, Mark Stallings, Lovell Bradford, Bill Hanna and Charles Craig, will play Guaraldi’s music along with a selection of other holiday classics. Tickets are $20 and available at CarolinaTix.org or by phone at (704) 372-1000.

“This is a perfect show for the entire family and wonderful way to jazz up your holidays,” said JAI Executive Director Lonnie Davis. “And our shows have all been selling out so we encourage everyone to get their tickets early.”

Jazz Arts Initiative is a non-profit organization made up of arts patrons, educators, musicians and business leaders dedicated to the promotion, education, and the preservation of jazz and related art forms. Visit TheJazzArts.org for more information.
