On Saturday, February 9 there was a sold out crowd at the Boerne Performing Arts presentation of The 5 Browns. The piano quintet is comprised of five sibling Juilliard pianists, two brothers and three sisters.
Stephen Beus, a fellow Juilliard student of the Browns, sat in for Desirae, one of the sisters.
Since being dubbed the "Fab Five" by People Magazine, the group has been featured on Oprah, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, Today, and The Tonight Show.
Each week on World Music (Saturday nights from 8-10 on KSTX 89.1 FM), I take a look at festivals happening around the world along with the music of the cultures they represent. This week, we’re ridding the land of evil spirits in Japan, and celebrating St. Joseph in Spain.
