Praised for their “high level of musicality and technical ability” and for their “clean, clear and precise sound,” the award-winning Axiom Brass Quintet has quickly established itself as “one of the major art music groups in brass chamber music.” As the only Brass Quintet in 27 years to ever win the prestigious Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition (2012), and the only American ensemble to ever win the Preis der Europa-Stadt Passau in Germany (2012), Axiom has also been named winners of the 2008 International Chamber Brass Competition and prize-winners of the 2016 M-Prize,  2010 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the Plowman Chamber Music Competition, and the Jeju City International Brass Quintet Competition in South Korea. Axiom Brass is dedicated to enhancing the musical life of communities across the globe and educating the next generation of musicians.

Visual artist: John Gaudette.

John is a bassoonist – and a painter/printmaker

“I’ve been drawing and painting since early childhood. I took art classes in high school and realized the correlation between art and music as soon as I started music lessons. Terms like color, line, tone, shape, and texture apply to the visual arts as well as music. When living in Canada, I started printmaking, taking courses and workshops at the Malaspina Printmakers Society in Vancouver. There I was introduced to monoprints and  stone lithography. Being a symphony musician, my works sometimes revolve around musical compositions. “Pictures at an Exhibition” (Mussorgsky), “Scherazade” (Rimsky-Korsakov), and “Jeu de Cartes” (Stravinsky) are examples. The 16 “Pictures” lithographs have been exhibited in Vancouver for the Vancouver Symphony, in Chicago for the Chicago Philharmonic and Jeff Yang’s In the Realm of Senses. When I first arrived in Chicago I started painting large lift prints on canvas. It’s combining printmaking with oil painting.”

With art as well as music, my mantra has always been “listen, don’t just hear” and “look, don’t just see”.
