Only a few tickets are left for two concerts that feature “The 5 Browns”, Julliard-trained Utah sibling superstars who have taken the piano world by storm. Cache Valley Center for the Arts Executive Director Wally Bloss says the shows will start at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, February 28 and Tuesday, March 1 on the stage of the Ellen Eccles Theatre.Bloss says he was shocked and concerned when he learned that Keith Brown, the father of “The 5 Browns”, was arrested last week and charged with abusing his three daughters when they were children.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Bloss said he learned that the Browns decided to go public with the charges in order to avoid other children becoming victims.”The father had decided to go back into management of young children,” Bloss explained, “and they said, ‘you know this is something that has been a family issue and we’ve just thought it not necessary to do something about it but now if this is going to expand we do need to be, frankly, responsible and take this action.'”Bloss said that these young adults had to make difficult decisions to come out in the open about their father’s past. “It’s got to be a very tough action,” Bloss continued. “Originally they weren’t planning to be out in the public eye but at this point they said, ‘No. This is something we need the public to know that this happened. We’re going to take our charges.’ “In a very short period of time of the word coming out in the public he plead guilty.”Bloss says the Brown siblings, now in their 20s and early 30s, severed their relationships with their father several years ago. Bloss says it’s exciting to have the young piano virtuosos who have been on Oprah, 60 Minutes and in People Magazine coming to the Ellen Eccles Theatre.
