The 5 Browns, America’s ‘Fab Five’ Piano Virtuosos, to Perform at Kingsbury Hall
October 25, 2010: The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – will make a stop on their 2010 concert tour in their home state, performing at Kingsbury Hall on the University of Utah campus on Saturday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $19.50, $24.50, $29.50 and $39.50 and are available at www.kingtix.com or by calling 801-581-7100.
Whether performing individually or together in various combinations from duo to complex five-piano arrangements, The 5 Browns reveal the sublime virtuosity that propelled these brothers and sisters to the top of the nation's classical music charts. 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. Upcoming career highlights include the premiere of a new work for five pianos and orchestra composed by Nico Muhly. The 5 Browns will premiere the work in summer 2011 at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Conlon.
In addition to touring, The 5 Browns are published writers. Their book, Life Between the Keys, was published by Phoenix Books in March 2009.
The children of Utah natives Keith and Lisa Brown, each sibling at around age 3 showed a clear talent and interest in piano lessons, and while the children were introduced to other instruments, their passion was the piano. Playing came as naturally to them as eating or sleeping and as early as age 9 they had each made their debut with a major symphony orchestra – a major pay-off for the hours of practice and dedication the entire family had devoted. They became the first family of five siblings ever to simultaneously attend New York’s Julliard School.
