Fifth and sixth grade girls from the Barton Hills Choir will perform at One World Theatre on December 8 in two shows with renowned jazz pianist David Benoit. Join the girls as they help relive the classic music and images of A Charlie Brown Christmas with Grammy-nominated Benoit, whose credits include 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 original Peanuts composer Vince Guaraldi, and solidify Benoit’s role as his musical heir.
The Barton Hills Choir performed for an audience of over a thousand at the annual lighting of the Zilker Holiday Tree, Sunday, December 1. The weather was unseasonably warm as the Choir helped ring in the holidays with their spirited renditions of Sleigh Ride, Jingle Bell Rock, and Winter Wonderland.
