Programme Introduction

The 5 Browns are a classical piano musical group consisting of five siblings. They became the first family of five siblings ever accepted by Juilliard School simultaneously. Their effort features atmospheric classical and jazz-inspired piano music, performed with the sublime virtuosity that propelled these twenty-something year old siblings -- Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae -- to the top of the nation's classical music charts first in 2005 with The 5 Browns. Their album Browns in Blue spent 8 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart in 2005 and the next year with No Boundaries also No. 1 on the charts for 21 weeks.

In the music world they are an unprecedented concert attraction: a singular quintet of world-class concert pianists, performing on five pianos and various ensemble combinations, dedicated to bringing classical music to the lives of people everywhere. Audiences in the UK, France and Germany, as well as Japan and Korea have also been dazzled by the 5 Browns who present themselves just as they really are: young adults with a modern look who love fashion, sports, computer games, dancing and all types of music - most of all, classical. The New York Post proclaimed: "One family, five pianos and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in years..." The Dallas Morning News said: "The 5 Browns proved that classical music can reach teens and twenty-somethings on their own ground, but without posturing or cheapening the product."
