In 2012 the group was also the only brass quintet in 27 years to win the prestigious Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition and that same year became the only American ensemble to win the Preis de Europa-Stadt Passau in Germany.

At the March 14 concert in Key West, Axiom will perform “The First Six,” by Lillian Yee; the “Dance Suite for Brass Quintet,” by Leonard Bernstein; “Axiom,” by Liduino Pitombeira;  “Angel Suite,” by Astor Piazzolla; selections from “Estudo Brasiliero,” by Cacilda Borges Barbosa; “Gaucho,” by Chiquinha Gonzaga; and “Oblivion,” also composed by Astor Piazzolla.
