We consider the homogenization of the wave equation with high frequency initial conditions propagating in a medium with highly oscillatory random coefficients. By appropriate mixing assumptions on the random medium, we obtain an error estimate between the exact wave solution and the homogenized wave solution in the energy norm. This allows us to consider the limiting behavior of the energy density of high frequency waves propagating in highly heterogeneous media when the wavelength is much larger than the correlation length in the medium.
