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. The quintet has been featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes.
The 5 Browns have released 3 CDs that each went to #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Classical Album Chart. They have been covered by various media outlets ranging from The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and The Today Show to CNN, Fox and Friends, The New York Times, and Los Angeles Times.
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” at about the same time they were featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes. The 5 Browns have released 3 CDs that each went to #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Classical Album Chart.
“Send them out to schools from shore to shore, with piano teachers on hand to sign up students afterward, and the future of classical music will look a lot brighter … THE 5 BROWNS proved that classical music can reach teens and twenty-somethings on their own ground, but without posturing or cheapening the product” —Dallas Morning News
“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 New York Post
