Hillman Artists Series, A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Music of Vince Guaraldi

The Department of Music at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor continues its season of the Hillman Visiting Artists Series by brightening up the season with “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Performing at the Baugh Concert Hall on Thursday, December 7th, at 7:30 pm, this holiday concert features all of the music from the animated television special, as well as some additional Vince Guaraldi favorites. Guaraldi's music was instrumental in cementing the TV special's place in pop culture history. Performing these iconic pieces will be UMHB Artist in Residence and award-winning pianist Michelle Schumann; bassist, Jessica Gilliam Valls; and jazz drummer Scott Lanningham. Audiences can also expect a few special guests to join the trio on stage, including UMHB student singer Katherine Spellmon.

A Charlie Brown Christmas is the perfect family event this holiday season and ideal for any age! 

This concert is made possible through the generous support of the Helen Frances Hillman Fund for Scholarly Exchange.  The Hillman Visiting Artist Recital Series is underwritten by The Helen Frances Hillman Fund for Scholarly Exchange. The fund was established in 1999 by Dr. Jimmye S. Hillman in honor of his wife, Helen Frances Smith Hillman, Mary Hardin-Baylor Class of 1946. The fund was designed to foster scholarly exchange at UMHB, particularly in the area of fine arts, music and languages.  

All performances in the Hillman Visiting Artist Series are free and open to the public.  For more information please call the College of Visual and Performing Arts at (254) 295-4678.
