The Fab Five of Steinways are Bach for more!
Piano quintet The 5 Browns return to the Oregon Bach Festival this summer
Eugene, Oregon June 11th, 2012 – After two nearly sold-out shows in 2007 and 2008, the piano-shredding siblings, The 5 Browns, are returning to the Oregon Bach Festival on July 12th at 7:30 PM in Silva Concert Hall.
Having been dubbed the “Fab Five” by People magazine, this quintet attended the Julliard School all at the same time, being the largest group of family members to ever be accepted concurrently. The festival is thrilled to be able to welcome back such a talented group. Along with their Thursday night performance, they’ll be holding a free Q & A session, July 11th at 12 PM in The Studio at The Hult Center.
Since their appearance at the festival nearly 4 years ago, the siblings have been keeping busy with touring, recording and even writing their own book. Their most recent album, The 5 Browns…In Hollywood, was released during the spring of 2010, making it their fifth album to date.
Armed with their trusty Steinway pianos and a passion for sharing classical music with excited audiences, The 5 Browns are bringing music for the entire family to the festival with Gershwin, Copland and even a little Disney! It’s sure to be a magical performance.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the Hult Center and UO ticket offices.
Prices range from $15 to $38 for the general public and are $10 with a student ID.
