About Sylvie Tran
Sylvie Tran is currently in her third year at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she is pursuing her Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance under Professor Jill Felber. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Sylvie's teachers have also included Valerie Potter, Carla Beauchamp, and Claudia Anderson. Sylvie has performed in masterclasses with flutists such as Trevor Wye, Judith Mendenhall, Jeffery Zook, Angeleita Floyd, and Adrianne Greenbaum, and has spent her summers studying at Marrowstone Music Festival, Aria International Summer Academy, Rocky Ridge Music Center, and Sandia Music Festival.
Sylvie is active in the UCSB music department, where she is a member of the University Wind Ensemble, University Chamber Orchestra, and woodwind quintet, and also studies piano with Professor Paul Berkowitz. In 2016, Sylvie was a recipient of the Eileen Southern Travel Fund award from the American Musicological Society, and traveled to Vancouver, BC, to attend their annual meeting in conjunction with the Society for Music Theory.
In her spare time, Sylvie likes to read murder mysteries and solve Rubik's cubes. Also an amateur computer programmer, she is currently working on creating a tool to help musicians log their practice.
