Piano Quintet, The 5 Browns “Fab Five” to perform at the Frank Arts Center

By Staff | Apr 5, 2013

The Friends of Music announces their season feature, The 5 Browns, Wednesday, April 10 at 8 p.m. in the Frank Arts Center at Shepherd University.

The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – all attended New York’s Juilliard School becoming the first 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” at about the same time they were featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes. The 5 Browns have released 3 CDs that each went to #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Classical Album Chart. The New York Post has proclaimed: “One family, five pianos and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in yearsWhen these kids do Rachmaninoff, they’ll make you forget about Marshall amps.” The Five Browns are delivering on their dream to wake up classical music by introducing it to the widest, largest, and most excited audience they can find.

Join the Friends of Music for The 5 Browns concert on Wednesday, April 10, at 8 p.m. at the Frank Arts Center. The concert is being sponsored by Steinway & Sons of Bethesda, Md.; Scott Beard and Alan Gibson; and Alice and Neal Barkus.
