The Halifax Jazz Festival once again presents Tales of a Charlie Brown Christmas, featuring Halifax jazz legend Jerry Granelli, and the Jerry Granelli Trio.
You’ve seen the movie (A Charlie Brown Christmas). You know the music. Now is your chance to hear the music live! Played by one of the members of the original band…Halifax’s own Jerry Granelli.
Percussionist Jerry Granelli was a member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio when the band scored and performed the original recording of A Charlie Brown Christmas in 1965. Since the television special’s debut in 1965, the music has gone on to become an iconic soundtrack for the holiday season.
Granelli is no stranger to the Halifax Jazz Festival audiences, and is one of three parts of the Jerry Granelli Trio, which also includes Calgary’s Simon Fisk on bass, and Vancouver’s Chris Gestrin on piano. For this special performance, the Jerry Granelli Trio is joined by Sacred Heart Elementary School Choir.
There are 2 shows on December 4th – 2:00pm and 8:00pm
Tales of A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Halifax Jazz Festival’s 13th annual fundraiser for music education, will be presented at the Spatz Theatre, Citadel High School, with two performances at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Sunday, December 4th.
For the 2:00 pm matinee performance, one child (12 and under) may accompany an adult for free. Tickets for both performances are $40
