NEWS RELEASE
GUELPH YOUTH MUSIC CENTRE
*************************
What would Christmas be without the much-loved Charlie Brown Christmas? This delightful annual favourite is an Emmy Award-winning holiday tradition enjoyed by children – both young and old. Equally magical is the soundtrack created by Vince Guaraldi. Everyone knows the popular 'Christmas Time is Here.'

Join us at the Guelph Youth Music Centre this holiday season as we present this jazz classic. The concert takes place Friday, Dec. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Guelph Youth Music Centre in the Recital Hall.

“We’re so pleased to bring back this wonderful Christmas concert”, says GYMC executive director, Gabriella Currie-Ziegler. “It was enjoyed by so many last year, we want to offer it again. My Christmas is not complete without seeing the smiles on the children’s faces!” 

With stellar talent - Adam Bowman on drums, Thomas Hammerton on piano and Tyler Wagler on bass – this promises to be a delightful, festive evening as these musicians perform the album, top to bottom. They will be joined by a children’s choir - The Kingsbury Music Singers directed by Shannon Kingsbury.

“For as long as I can remember, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been the soundtrack of the holidays for me,” says drummer/leader, Adam Bowman. “There are great jazz albums and great Christmas albums, but very few that are both. The holidays can mean different things to different people. From the magic of youthful excitement to nostalgic reflection, from melancholy memories to great delight, this music visits all of those emotions. I look forward to playing these songs with some great musicians and friends, and hope it can add a little enjoyment of the season for all.”
