Sylvie Tran

Music Theory


Sylvie Tran is a candidate in music theory. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Sylvie holds a B.M. in flute performance from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her dissertation examines musical features that represent the American West in classical music from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries through lenses of race, gender, the environment, and other issues. Some of her secondary research has involved analysis of performances of chamber music for wind instruments, exploring questions of embodiment, and, more broadly, the politics of arrangement and reorchestration. In her free time, Sylvie enjoys hiking and running, cooking spicy food, and solving Rubik’s cubes.
