ThePianoGuys at the Britt July 28, 2016


The Piano Guys

The Piano Guys are at the Britt Festival July, 28, 2016

Thepianoguys are an American musical sensation members are: Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek. Their popularity grew via YouTube, where piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music are posted. Schmidt and Nelson’s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson and formerly by Tel Stewart. Their first four major-label albums The Piano GuysThe Piano Guys 2A Family Christmas, and Wonders each reached number one on the Billboard New Age Albums and Classical Albums charts

The videos — with a pianist and a cellist — play classical and pop mash-ups against beautiful backdrops such as the Utah desert, the Great Wall of China and, most recently, a set for the Batcave. The latter turned them into a YouTube viral sensation.

“You have a cello and a piano playing in a classical vein, but it is tough to pin us down,” Mr. Nelson said. He dislikes the term crossover because, he says, most classical musicians just put a drum beat behind traditional music to reach a broader audience. Instead they will take, for example, five of the most memorable melodies from a classical work like Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and infuse it with a pop song, as they did with OneRepublic’s “Secrets.”

The Britt Festivals

Britt Music & Arts Festival, is Southern Oregon’s premier outdoor summer performing arts festival. Located in the charming historic gold-rush town of Jacksonville, Oregon.
The Britt presents dozens of summer concerts, featuring world-class artists in classical music, jazz, blues, folk, bluegrass, world, pop, and country music. Britt’s outdoor venue was the estate of the 19th century photographer Peter Brill. Its sloped grassy hillside forms a natural amphitheater surrounded by majestic Ponderosa pines and native Madrones.
