Renée Fleming is one of the most acclaimed singers of our time. In 2013, President Obama awarded her America’s highest honor for an artist, the National Medal of the Arts. She brought her voice to a vast new audience in 2014 as the first classical artist ever to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, Renée Fleming has sung for momentous occasions from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II.

Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra, and Desirae were the first family of five siblings ever accepted simultaneously to New York’s Juilliard School. They perform individually or in combinations from duo to complex five-piano arrangements. Back by popular demand, The 5 Browns sold out at their last Kohler performance. The quintet has been in the spotlight since 2002 when People Magazine dubbed them the “Fab Five,” and they were featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and 60 Minutes. Each of their three CDs reached #1 on Billboard magazine’s classical album chart. This is an entertaining show for all ages!
