Patrick Kerssen: Vince Guaraldi, The Man Behind Peanuts

Sunday, December 8, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Patrick Kerssen Peanuts

Holiday Matinee. Patrick Kerssen Trio presents Vince Guaraldi, The Man Behind “Peanuts”

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.

Funding for this program provided by the Haverford Township Free Library and Kelly Music for Life.

Join us at the Kelly Center for an interactive program of live music, learning, and even a little dancing! The Patrick Kerssen Trio will trace the musical career of Vince Guaraldi through in depth musical analysis, audience participation, and live musical performance. Come out and get in the Charlie Brown Christmas spirit!

The Patrick Kerssen Trio is a jazz piano trio led by pianist Patrick Kerssen that performs throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. The group’s main focus is the education and creation of new jazz listeners through a combination of Patrick’s arrangements of “updated standards,” (from sources like classic R&B and other pop music, modern film scores, folk music from around the world, and well known European classical music) and traditional jazz by hard bop era pianists and bandleaders. The members of the trio are all experienced professionals, with many tours and major venue performances under their belts at jazz festivals, jazz clubs, large theaters and PACs, and other venues.
