Update: Some, like my daughter, have suggested the fox is singing ("la, la, la..."). Interpret as you wish.

I'm sure by now that at some point you have seen or listened to the Piano Guys online, on disc or via iTunes. The Sprouts have a favourite video as do my students. Recently the Piano Guys released a video of an arrangement that incorporates two wonderful compositions. The main theme the Piano Guys borrow for this arrangement is Home, a song performed by Phillip Phillips (who gets lots of airplay in our home). The main theme is interspersed with a motif from Anton Dvořák’s New World Symphony (a favourite work of mine). You might recognize that theme as Going Home. Enjoy this interpretation:
