Dylan Trần

Dylan Trần is a Vietnamese-American composer based out of New Orleans, LA. His works are lauded for both their innovation and idiomaticness. His aural curiosity is balanced with his discipline as a craftsman and his vast experience as a performer on the opera stage, in professional choirs, new and early music ensembles, rock bands, and ethnomusicological foyers into his own Việt heritage. While his works often provide an exciting challenge for performers, he has demonstrated flexibility in writing for musicians of all skill levels. Recent successes include a commission from Loyola University New Orleans for acommunity-sourced song cycle, a nomination from Gambit Magazine for “Best New Classical Music Performance” for his first string quartet, and a song commission for White Snake Projects’ “Sing OutStrong: Essential Voices.”
