A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS to Play the Kentucky Center, 12/5
A Charlie Brown Christmas, Kentucky Center, Dave Benoit
Dave Benoit is an accomplished contemporary jazz pianist, composer, and conductor. In the past twenty years, he has created, recorded, and performed a variety of projects related to his reverence for original Peanuts composer Vince Guaraldi. Benoit's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" concert includes performance of the beloved holiday recording in its entirety, with the Benoit quartet accompanied by a chamber orchestra and local children's choir.
Benoit's prolific output since 2000 includes several prominent Charlie Brown related projects (including Here's To You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years and the star-studded 40 Years: A Charlie Brown Christmas) that reflect his lifelong passion for the music of Guaraldi and solidify Benoit's role as his musical heir. Benoit has also released the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charting albums Fuzzy Logic, Right Here, Right Now, Full Circle and Heroes, which paid homage to the pianist's top jazz and pop influences.
