Artists,

The 5 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. Whether performing individually or together in various combinations from duo to complex five-piano arrangements, The 5 Browns reveal a deep connection to the intent of their material while bringing a fresh energy and dynamic character to the color and tonal spectrum of their sound.

The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – all attended New York’s Juilliard School. In fact, they became 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” and at about the same time they were featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes. The 5 Browns have released three 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 years…When these kids do Rachmaninoff, they’ll make you forget about Marshall amps.”

The quintet has garnered extensive coverage from media outlets ranging from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America, The Today Show and The View to The Martha Stewart Show and National Public Radio’s Performance Today. They have also appeared in the pages of The New York Times, Parade, People, the Los Angeles Times, the Sunday London Telegraph and Entertainment Weekly. (EW called them “…five young Mormons who all play scorching piano. Thundering down on five Steinways together, they’re button-down cute and somewhat otherworldly.”)

The 5 Browns tour extensively and have performed in numerous venues including the Grand National Theater in China, Suntory Hall in Japan, The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Symphony Hall in Chicago and Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

In addition to touring, The 5 Browns are published writers.  Their book, Life Between the Keys, was published by Phoenix Books in March 2009.

In the spring of 2010 their new CD The 5 Browns…In Hollywood was released on the E1 Music label.   They are also featured in a new PBS TV special, The 5 Browns in Concert, that is airing on PBS stations throughout the country.

Recent highlights include the premiere of a new work for five pianos and orchestra composed by Nico Muhly. The 5 Browns premiered the work in summer 2011 at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Conlon.
