Chicago’s own Axiom Brass ensemble (Dorival Puccini, trumpet; Colin Oldberg, trumpet; Matt Oliphant, horn; Caleb Lambert, trombone; and Kevin Harrison, tuba) announced on November 7 that they took first prize in the European City Passau International Competition for Brass Instruments. This marks the first time in the 22-year history of the competition that an American group has earned top place.
