Utah’s favorite dads, The Piano Guys, announce the next leg of their U.S. tour with festive performances in December just in time for the holidays. Cellist, Steven Sharp Nelson, and pianist, Jon Schmidt, will perform their unique versions of songs such as the hit, “Let It Go” from Disney’s critically acclaimed film, Frozen as well a beautiful rendition of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” For their holiday performances, audiences can expect to sing along to classics like “Silent Night,” “We Three Kings” and a medley of “Winter Wonderland/Let It Snow.”
The Piano Guys began making music videos for fun and their “hobby” turned into a worldwide phenomenon as their self-made YouTube videos continue to amass millions of views. Their latest self-made music video, “The Mission / How Great Thou Art” was inspired by an ambitious goal to film at all Seven Wonders of the World. The Great Wall of China was the first Wonder of the World where they shot their video for “Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends.” To date, the Utah-based classical-pop group has released three major label albums on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks: The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, and a holiday album called A Family Christmas. The members of the group include Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson. Their unique style has garnered rave reviews and performances on The Today Show, The Tonight Show, Katie, CBS This Morning, Fox & Friends among others.
