Heather Pierson's Charlie Brown Christmas
at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center at Fryeburg Academy
18 Bradley Street, Fryeburg, ME
The Heather Pierson Quartet (Heather Pierson, piano/vocals; Joe Aliperti, alto & tenor sax; Shawn Nadeau, bass; Matty Bowman, drums) will present the musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas. Originally telecast in December 1965, the program was an instant hit with audiences who connected with Peanuts creator Charles M. Schultz’s cast of characters – especially with its rounded-headed hero Charlie Brown, his woefully scrawny Christmas tree, and his typewriter-wielding dog Snoopy. Nearly given the ax by CBS studios at the time of its release, this beloved holiday classic resonates with both children and adults of every generation. The musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi, is just as poignant and touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit “Linus and Lucy”. Don't miss this very special evening which will also include other jazzy holiday favorites!
Slow down this Holiday Season. Gift yourself a wonderful evening of Holiday Favorites: Start the evening off with some light hors d’oevures and drinks, and then enjoy a scrumptious Holiday Dinner with all the fixings prepared and served by Lake Region Caterers, Inc. Then, sit back and relax while enjoying the wonderful show with the Heather Pierson Quartet.
