Axiom Quartet is a 501(c)(3) non-profit born in Houston with a mission to present inclusive concerts to a wide array of audiences.
The Axiom Quartet is a passionate and dynamic string quartet committed to presenting meaningful performances to the Houston metroplex and beyond.
Through its many concert experiences, the Axiom Quartet has performed a variety of works ranging from traditional classical and contemporary music to Broadway standards. The group experiments with bringing their individual music performances to unconventional venues as well as traditional concert halls.
The trademark of the Axiom Quartet’s performances are the unique, diverse programs, combining different styles of string quartet repertoire under a specific theme that is presented in an artistic and meaningful format.
The quartet is currently The String Quartet-in-Residence for the Music Preparatory School at the University of St. Thomas. The group hosts regular concert series at the University's Cullen Hall.
The Axiom Quartet has been invited as first ever classical string ensemble to perform at the Cave Without A Name in Texas Hill Country. The unusual event attracted wide audiences and gathered enthusiastic reviews from the concert goers and the local press. Following that success Axiom Quartet continues to perform at the Cave to sold out crowds.
In 2015-2016 season the Axiom Quartet continues their work as outreach ambassador for Chamber Music Houston (formerly Houston Friends of Chamber Music), one of the top chamber music presenters in the nation. Through the collaboration with CMH the Axiom Quartet serves the community by visiting local schools and retirement homes. The group’s unique music programs combined with spoken word, make the listening experience approachable for all ages and interests. The Axiom Quartet also coaches master classes for student ensembles at selected schools in Houston.
Being actively involved in educational, outreach and audience development initiatives at their home venue at University of St.Thomas, in the summer of 2014 the Axiom Quartet hosted the first Chamber Music Camp at UST for local students. In 2015 the second edition of the Camp nearly doubled the enrollment, attracting students from the entire Houston Metro area.
