Patrick Kerssen Trio presents Vince Guaraldi, the Man Behind “Peanuts”

Join us for this holiday concert by Patrick Kerssen Trio at the Kelly Center! Some of the best known piano trio recordings of all time, Vince Guaraldi’s “Peanuts” soundtracks made him one of the most famous pianists of the 20th century. However, the breadth and quality of his work expands far beyond Charlie Brown, Linus, and Lucy.

This program explores the life and music of Guaraldi, touching on his original compositions, the “Peanuts” soundtracks and their history, his deep affinity for bossa nova, what led to the “Peanuts” music and where it led him.

Celebrate the holiday season, Patrick and his trio perform all of the best known tracks from the “Peanuts” specials, culminating in a Charlie Brown Christmas style dance party to finish up the show, always sure to leave the audience smiling!

This program is made possible through a partnership between the Haverford Township Free Library and Kelly Music for Life.
