Get to know the
The Axiom Quartet is a dynamic and passionate string quartet that explores all genres of music with no boundaries or limits. Axiom has become known around Texas for its inventive programs that mix music from the classical canon with transcriptions, and new compositions along with the inclusion of popular rock, electronic, indie, jazz, and pop genres in a single concert experience. The unifying concept is simply expressivity whereby Axiom’s concerts turn classical fans towards extraordinary popular music while serving as classical music advocates to those who normally do not attend classical concerts.
The individual players of Axiom have decades of combined experience performing internationally as soloists, chamber musicians, and orchestral performance. The Axiom Quartet serves as outreach ambassador for Chamber Music Houston, one of Houston's top chamber music presenters. This collaboration allows the group to perform their innovative programs in communities where access to live music is limited. Axiom performs with the nationally recognized “Harmony in the Air” program and presents weekly concerts at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Axiom is the first classical string ensemble to ever play at Cave Without a Name in the Texas Hill Country, and for the past four years, have played to overflowing audiences.
Recent major projects include: the release of their first album Axioms - Moments of Truth (which was a commercial success and sold out within 24 hours of being released on Amazon), a tour of 12 concerts in 20 days throughout China in the summer or 2018, and a tour of the Midwest U.S. in the fall of 2019 where the group gave masterclasses and appeared as soloists with university orchestras in the region.
