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 to the color and spectrum of musical sound.

The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – all attended New York’s Juilliard School, where they became the first family of five siblings to be admitted. The quintet 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 5 Browns’ albums have collectively spent over 30 weeks in the #1 position 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.”

The quintet has garnered extensive coverage from media outlets ranging from The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, Today, and The View to The Martha Stewart Show, Public Radio’s Performance Today, as well as The New York Times, Parade, People, the Los Angeles Times, the Sunday London Telegraph, and Entertainment Weekly.

The 5 Browns tour extensively and have performed in numerous venues including Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Grand National Theater in Beijing, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, and Symphony Hall in Chicago. Individually and collaboratively, they have soloed with orchestras around the world, including the National Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New Jersey Symphony, the Saint Louis Symphony, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and the Orchestre de chambre de Paris.

A highlight for the quintet was a commissioned five-piano concerto written by famed composer Nico Muhly. Under the direction of Maestro James Conlon, the concerto premiered in 2011 at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

The group was also featured in a PBS TV special, “The 5 Browns In Concert” which aired on PBS stations throughout the country.

The 5 Browns are Steinway Artists.
