This past spring Skidmore College and Saratoga Arts Fest teamed up to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Paris premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, with the world premiere of a new arrangement for five pianos.
The once-controversial composition was performed by The 5 Browns — a group of siblings hailed for their piano virtuosity. All five — Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra,
and Desirae Brown studied at The Juilliard School together. They have wanted to do this performance ever since they began performing together 10 years ago.
Prepare to be stirred and enthralled as the filmed performance is presented by WMHT on Friday, January 24, at 10 p.m.
