Join the Dayton Philharmonic in a Holiday Pops concert featuring jazz music from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” with Steinway Artist Jim Martinez and his jazz quartet. This festive concert features songs from the 1965 Peanuts Christmas animated special, as well as other traditional holiday favorites. The song list includes such hits as “Christmas Time Is Here,” “Linus and Lucy” and “Skating” composed by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi and arranged for orchestra by Jim Martinez. With entertaining stories shared by Martinez of his personal connection to Peanuts and the family of Charles M. Schulz and his knowledge of Vince Guaraldi, this evening is all about the spirit of jazz, the spirit of Christmas, and the spirit of Charlie Brown.
