In the Christmas Spirit: Piano Guys, Part III

    Publisher's note: If you appreciate the musical and cinematography creativity of the extra talented Piano Guys, as much as we do here at BCN, you can easily access all of their segments here.

    In this third and final segment of the three part series, we have three videos: "Where Are You Christmas?" featuring Sarah Schmidt, who is one of Jon's five children; "We Three Kings"; and "Arwen's Vigil", an original composition by Al Van Der Beek, Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson. The first two videos are Christmas Carols, the third video is an original composition inspired by Lord of the Rings.

    Piano Guys consider their variation upon the standards and their own creative compositions as "New Age Classical", which is is personified in their unique arrangements concentrating on only their virtuosity of two instruments - the piano and the cello.

    The members of the Piano Guys all hail from Utah, with all members being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Mormons. Below are their collective beliefs that are wise and spirit-filled, irrespective of your denomination, or spiritual beliefs.

We believe the purpose of life is to be happy.
We believe the best way to be happy is to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and to love others more than yourself.
We believe family is most important.
We believe we are all children of a God who loves us dearly.
We believe that good music can be a source of joy, inspiration, and fulfillment.
We believe as Bobby McFerrin once said, listening to only one kind of music is like insisting on living in only one room of your home your entire life.
We believe in as much laughter in life as possible.

Below is the Christmas carol "Where Are You Christmas?":
