The Boerne performing arts series continues on Tuesday and I caught up with one of the performers, Zachary De Pue from the band Time for Three, a band whose music is difficult to classify. De Pue said all the members attended the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.
“And we met there and jammed together outside of our classical studies and training," he said. "Each one of us, in addition to classical music, had a background in different styles.”
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.
In classical circles, a piano quintet is almost always one piano and four instrumentalists (string or wind). The Five Browns are literally a piano quintet -- five Juilliard pianists -- and all family -- two brothers and three sisters! Since being dubbed the "Fab Five" by People Magazine, they have been featured on Oprah, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, Today, and The Tonight Show.
Marching band will fill Boerne Champion High School Auditorium
Drumline Live is an international tour based on the Historically Black College and University marching band tradition. With rhythm, bold beats and energy, the stage show is a synchronized musical showcase. Incorporating original compositions and soul-infused interpretations of top 40 hits, group performances ranges from colorful, choreographed routines to heavy doses of drum riffs and cadences.
