Bancroft & Telegraph Ave.
Berkeley, CA 94720
Starts at 07:00 PM
World Stage. Celebrating the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum, the taiko, Kodo explores new directions for a vibrant living art form. The versatile performers dance, mime, and play a variety of instruments, but it is their awesome drums that mesmerize the audience, including the massive o-daiko, a 900-pound decorated instrument carved from the trunk of a single tree and played by two men. ‘If there is such a thing as perfection in music, Kodo comes as near to it as any group in the world’ (Boston Glove).

The Five Browns
“Their fantastic live performances are something to be seen.” -Entertainment Weekly
The 5 Browns – Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae – all attended New York’s Juilliard School and became the first family of five siblings ever accepted simultaneously. The quintet enjoyed their first wave of critical attention in February 2002 when People magazine dubbed them the “Fab Five” and at about the same time they were featured on Oprah and 60 Minutes. The 5 Browns have released 3 CDs that each went to #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Classical Album Chart. The New York Post has proclaimed: “One family, five pianos and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in years…When these kids do Rachmaninoff, they’ll make you forget about Marshall amps.”
In the spring of 2010, their new CD “The 5 Browns… In Hollywood”, was released on the E1 Music label. They are also featured in a new PBS TV special, “The 5 Browns In Concert” that is airing on PBS stations throughout the country.
The 5 Browns’ Flint Center program will include classical numbers such as Rondo alla Turca, The Rite of Spring, and fan favorites Over the Rainbow: Fantasy for Five Pianos, Atonement and many more.
The 5 Browns are exclusive Steinway Artists.
