If you haven’t heard these guys – I promise that listening to them will make your weekend. If you have heard them play, go and enjoy them again. They are so, so good.
John Schmidt (piano) and Steven Sharp Nelson (cello) have teamed up to create The Piano Guys. They take popular songs and put an amazing classical twist on them, or will take classical songs and put an amazing modern twist on them.
I am a little bit obsessed with them right now. To the point that I have had to limit my “Piano Guys” intake. But I still wanted to share their awesomeness with all of you.
These are a few of our family’s favorites:
A Thousand Years (Christina Perri) – this is their newest one and is beautiful
Peponi (from Coldplay’s “Paradise”) – my 2-year old says this one is her “favite” (favorite) – mine too.
Happy Together (we have watched this probably 20 times – it still hasn’t gotten old):
Bourne Vivaldi – they are on a TRAIN for part of it
You can go to their You Tube channel and watch/listen to all of their videos by clicking here.
John and Steve, thank you so much! Your music is incredible.
