The classically-trained group is made up of the five Brown sisters and brothers- Desirae, Ryan, Melody, Gregory and Deondra - who attended the Juilliard School in New York City. Their first album last year topped the Billboard charts, and a new CD, No Boundaries, is scheduled for release this spring. They have been seen on major national television programs such as 60 Minutes II, Oprah and The Today Show and have been featured in high profile publications such as The New York Times, People Magazine, The Los Angeles Times and The Sunday London Telegraph.

The Browns, playing on five Steinway pianos, will perform collectively and individually a variety of showpieces including Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakov, L'Isle Joyeuse by Claude Debussy, L'Apprenti Sorcier (The Sorcerer's Apprentice) by Paul Dukas and Selections from West Side Story, transcribed for five pianos. Intermission will feature a conversation with the young superstars.
