Michael Hawes


Hi everyone! Welcome….

Just a way for my friends, family and colleagues to stay in touch and learn more about my musical life. Grateful to have music in my life, I split my time as a Singer, Trumpeter and Pianist. Based in Chicago, I lead music at St. Cornelius Catholic Church, play Trumpet with Axiom Brass, and travel the world singing or playing wherever someone wants me.


“Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic beyond all we do here!”

- Albus Dumbledore


As a guy who’s not great with his words, I’m most comfortable with my Axiom friends playing through a newly composed or arranged Brass Quintet, or in the back row of the Choir, singing a Bach Motet. Either way, music has a way to bring folks together and feel things that truly are beyond explanation. Grateful for all of my beautiful friends and colleagues out there, I’m the luckiest guy in the world making music with you.

Much love,
