Bright Star Season Shines
The critically-acclaimed, Juilliard-trained pianists of The 5 Browns brought their amazing talent to the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre in April. They were just one of many fine national acts to perform on the Viterbo stage again this year, as the university affirmed its reputation as a cultural center for the arts in western Wisconsin.
The 5 Browns consists of brothers and sisters Desirae, Deondra, Gregory, Melody, and Ryan Brown. 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 also 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 was sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio. It was 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.
