Musical Muses - Piano Guys



I had the privilege to hear the amazing talents of The Piano Guys Thursday night (11th) at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, Maryland. Their performance was absolutely phenomenal. I knew they were incredibly talented, just by watching their numerous youtube videos. But I truly didn't grasp the extent of their talent and sheer gift for creating musical masterpieces until I sat in the overhead balcony of the Symphony Hall taking in the sights and sounds of their work. What a treat it was! And just in time for the holidays.

At one point in the evening, while Jon and Steve were playing Rockelbel's Canon, Jon got up from playing the piano and began to rock it out on the stage. Who knew he could dance like that? It was spontaneously hilarious, and definitely a highlight of the evening.

Near the end of the concert, Jon and Steve both publicly dedicated a song to God. It was beautiful to see their proclamation of Him. Another huge highlight of a very magical sort of evening.

O Come, O Come. Emmanuel (almost my favorite piece from the night)
The whole team, Jon, Steve, Al, and Paul performing Ants Marching/Ode To Joy and What Makes You Beautiful.
There was a really splendid song list for the evening, some favorites and some new songs.
Do you like The Piano Guys? Silly question, of course you do! What's your favorite song of theirs thus far?
