Axiom Brass, a Chicago-based quintet, is on a mission to redefine chamber music for their instrument family and, as a result, the entire genre.
"People don't usually realize the more intimate side of brass playing," explains Kevin Harrison, tuba player for the quintet. "That's the approach we take. We play music and we share and talk about our experiences with that the pieces we play with our audiences to create that intimate connection."
The quintet stopped by the Firmin-Garner Studio while in town as artists-in-residence for the 60th annual University of Arkansas Summer Music Camp. Axiom Brass presents a free concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 18, inside the University Baptist Chuch in downtown Fayetteville.
