Jon Schmidt grew up in a music-loving family, he tells Cara Lieurance, citing two older siblings who nurtured his talent at a pianist. Hearing Mannheim Steamroller's creative pop-classical crossover arrangements inspired him to continue his path of bridging his classical training and popular entertainment. As the pianist in The Piano Guys, he and cellist Steven Sharp Nelson are featured in instrumental videos that have been viewed over 1.6 billion times.  

The Piano Guys will perform at 7:30 pm Wednesday, Nov 20 in Miller Auditorium
