The 5 Browns are a family of siblings who perform their own unique brand of classical music: five grand pianos onstage at once, played in perfect time and harmony. They’ve been featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes, and their three albums have each held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Classical Album Chart. The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – all attended New York’s Juilliard School, becoming the only family of five siblings ever accepted simultaneously. The quintet enjoyed their first wave of critical attention in February 2002, when People magazine dubbed them the “Fab Five.” The New York Post has proclaimed: “One family, five pianos and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in years.” The 5 Browns bring their talents (and their pianos) to WMPAC for an exceptional evening of music.
