THE 5 BROWNS TO PERFORM AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY APRIL 1
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The critically-acclaimed, Juilliard-trained pianists of The 5 Browns will bring their amazing talent to the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre Tuesday, April 1.
The 5 Browns consists of brothers and sisters Desirae, Deondra, Gregory, Melody, and Ryan Brown. As children, they each showed a distinct talent and interest in the piano when beginning lessons around age three. Performing together, individually, and in different combinations, The 5 Browns have created a unique style all their own.
Their self-titled debut album, The 5 Browns, spent 10 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Music chart. Their smash-hit follow-up album, No Boundaries, spent 20 consecutive weeks at #1.
The 5 Browns have performed on NBC’s Weekend Today, ABC’s The View, A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts, and other national television programs. Their energy and style is opening the doors of classical music to wider and younger audiences.
This event is part of Viterbo’s Bright Star Season and is sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio. It is supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art, with additional contributions from General Mills Foundation, Land O’ Lakes Foundation, and the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
Performance time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $31 for upper balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or www.viterbo.edu/fac.
