I was in my high school’s orchestra, and as part of our grade we had to form and play in chamber music groups. Naturally people did classic duets, trios, or quartets. Me? I decided to do something outside the box and form a “band.” I had my friend who was in the school’s chorus sing, my other friend play guitar, and I played cello as the base line. We covered songs like “White Horse” by Taylor Swift and “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. I really got into arranging the music for our band because it really challenged me as a musician to figure out how to make songs work with our instrumentation. It was around this time that I discovered the Piano Guys. I fell in love with their cover/remix of “Love Story” by Taylor Swift and “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay (aka “Love Story Meets Viva La Vida”), which was a #PhillipsSongOfTheDay (read here). Since that time, they have really grown and have some incredible work.
Here are the Piano Guys at their best:
