WESTPORT — The jaunty jazz musical score for the animated Christmas classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” will be performed Dec. 3 by the Heather Pierson Trio at Voices Café of the Unitarian Church in Westport.

The concert is set for 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at the café, 10 Lyons Plains Road.

Tickets cost $25, and can be purchased online by clicking here. A portion of the concert proceeds will benefit food insecurity programs managed by the Mercy Learning Center in Bridgeport. 

The score for “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” a cartoon chronicling holiday misadventures of Charles Schulz’s anti-hero, was written by Vince Guaraldi. The program has become a Christmas television tradition since it debuted in 1965.

For the Voices Café concert, the Heather Pierson Trio, based in Conway N,H., will perform Guaraldi’s complete score for “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” plus additional Guaraldi compositions and other holiday music.

Pierson, the vocalist, is accompanied by Shawn Nadeau on bass and Craig Bryan on drums. Learn more at Pierson’s website.
