Praised for their musicality and internationally recognized for their groundbreaking programming, Chicago-based Axiom Brass’ repertoire ranges from jazz and Latin music to string quartet transcriptions, as well as original compositions for brass quintet.
This award-winning Quintet has quickly established itself as “one of the major art music groups in brass chamber music.”
Axoim is the only Brass Quintet in 27 years to win the prestigious Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, and the only American ensemble to win the Preis der Europa-Stadt Passau in Germany. They were also named winners of the 2008 International Chamber Brass Competition and prize-winners of the 2010 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the Plowman Chamber Music Competition, and the Jeju City International Brass Quintet Competition in South Korea.
The Axiom Brass is dedicated to enhancing the musical life of communities across the globe and educating the next generation of musicians. Their performances have captured the hearts and imaginations of their audiences, leading the ensemble to national radio and television appearances, as well as concerts in Asia, Europe, and across the United States
Axiom Brass is an Ensemble-in-Residence at the Music Institute of Chicago, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute and Rush Hour Concerts’ Back of the Yards program.
