Halifax Jazz Festival announces holiday fundraiser shows

The Halifax Jazz Festival has recently announced the entertainment for their 15th annual holiday fundraiser for music education. The shows will take place on December 10th at the Spatz Theatre in Halifax.

At 2 pm, there will be a performance of “Tales of a Charlie Brown Christmas” with the Jerry Granelli Trio. Jerry Granelli was a member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio when they did the original contemporary jazz recordings for A Charlie Brown Christmas, which debuted in 1965! Sacred Heart Elementary School Choir will be joining the Trio for this performance. This show is a definite must-see this December, and tickets can be bought here —$40 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.

The all-new evening show, “Swing Into the Holidays,” will begin at 7pm, and is produced by acclaimed jazz percussionist Artie Irwin. This show will feature seasonal music from jazz bands including The Tuesday Night Band, Kitty & the Katz, Georges Hebert & Standard Time, and The Black Alley Big Band ft. Doris Mason. Tickets for this show are $45 and available here.

Go enjoy some great holiday jazz music while supporting music education!

I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University. I’m currently studying for my degree in Interdisciplinary Design (focusing mostly on graphic design), after switching from studying digital and film photography for about 2 years. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. Most of my friends that I regularly talk to and hang out with I’ve met through us sharing the same love for bands and artists! My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a design degree, as I would love to do graphic design within the Canadian music industry one day.
