Merry Christmas! Since its inception in 1995, The Cartoon Christmas Trio has been the premier interpreter of the classic soundtracks of holiday cartoon music, especially the music of “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. Established solely for the purpose of capturing the nuances of the holiday music of Vince Guaraldi and his contemporaries, the trio maintains a vigorous December performance schedule. They have performed at The Kimmel Center, The Milton Theater, The Philadelphia Art Museum, The Queen Theater, World Café Live!, Winterthur Museum, Reading Museum and have also been heard on NPR, ABC, and NBC. As often as possible, the trio adds the young voices of local children’s choirs to complete the sound of the original vision of the music from Charlie Brown. This wonderful addition makes for a truly enlightened evening of music. Joining the trio once again this year at The Uptown Theater will be the combined children’s choirs of Pocopson, Unionville, and Hillendale Elementary Schools under the direction of Steve and Eileen Jennings. In addition, our good friend and baritone Grant Youngblood hopes to join us to spread some low end “Grinchy “spirit! The trio is comprised of Larry Marshall on drums, Jeff Knoettner on piano, and Rob Swanson on Double Bass. The members have over 100 combined years of performing and educational experience that they bring to every event, whether it be a concert or an education workshop for children. The trio looks forward to sharing this awesome music with you and yours!
