THE PIANO GUYS: Tickets on sale as of noon, December 12, 2014 Prices: $40 – $75


LINDSEY STIRLING is one of the biggest artist-development breakthrough stories in recent years. A classically trained violinist, she has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with more than 800 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold-out tours worldwide. In April, Stirling released her new album, Shatter Me, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard “Top 200” album chart ­– her highest charting album to date.

THE PIANO GUYS are an American musical group consisting of musicians Jon Schmidt (piano) and Steven Sharp Nelson (cellist), as well as behind-the-scenes collaboration with videographers Tel Stewart and Paul Anderson and music producer Al van der Beek. Formed in 2011, the group became famous through YouTube, posting videos of renditions and mash-ups of popular songs accompanied by high-quality video production; to date, over 1 million people subscribe to their YouTube channel.

All tickets may be purchased at the Performing Arts Center Ticket Office, Tuesday – Saturday, noon to 6 p.m., located on Grand Avenue on the Cal Poly campus.
