More about this program

"Open Source”

(A theology based on the voices of many)


Open Source asks the question: “If someone knocks on your spiritual door, will you let them in? If someone is lost, speaks a different language, looks different, believes different, will you let them in?” It asks: “Will you have my back?”


The answer is: “Open. Come in.” With this commitment:


“We try. We rise. We fail. We rise. 

We Misunderstand. We rise.

We heal. We rise.

All rise. We rise”  


A new work for string quartet and bass-baritone, “Open Source” is a collaboration between composer Karl Blench and librettist Jacqui Sutton. Commissioned by the First Congregational Church of Houston and Maggie Tucker, the work is inspired by the history and the mission of the church: to serve as a place of belonging for everyone regardless of race or creed.  


The Axiom Quartet will be premiering the work alongside bass-baritone Timothy Jones on June 10 at 7:00 at The First Congregational Church, 10840 Beinhorn Rd, Houston, TX 77024. 


To compliment this new work, the Axiom Quartet will be performing Beethoven’s Op. 130 String Quartet. The quartet will be performed with its alternative finale which is the last piece Beethoven ever wrote. The “Cavatina” from this quartet was also chosen by Carl Sagan to be on the golden records sent out to the stars on the Voyager spacecraft.


There are currently no scheduled community events 

but we look forward to renewing this series in the Fall of 2023!


About the Axiom Jukebox Project

The Axiom Quartet Jukebox Series is an innovative way of presenting chamber music in Houston's diverse communities that usually lack exposure to high-quality live music performances.

The Jukebox concept invites the community members to collaborate and participate in the creation of the music repertoire rather than simply accept the Quartet's own programming.

This approach allows the Axiom Quartet to affirm the cultural background of each community while providing a professional performance of excellent quality.

The quartet aims to bring awareness of the string quartet and traditional classical chamber music to the areas of the City of Houston that usually lack such exposure, so called "live performance deserts". For more information on the Jukebox concept or to invite us to perform in your community, please, click HERE

Take a break from your daily routine and experience something new!

Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
