The 5 Browns—Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae—are waking up classical music by introducing it to the widest, largest, and most excited audience they can find.
The five siblings all attended New York’s Juilliard School and enjoyed their first wave of critical attention in 2002 when People magazine dubbed them the “Fab Five,” and they were featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes. The quintet has released 3 CDs that each went to #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Classical Album Chart. The New York Post proclaimed: “One family, five pianos, and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in years… When these kids do Rachmaninoff, they’ll make you forget about Marshall amps.”
The 5 Browns have performed in numerous venues including the Grand National Theater in China, Suntory Hall in Japan, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and Symphony Center in Chicago.
