Jason Tran (* 1991) began his first conducting training in 2008 with Prof. Volker Wangenheim. He studied music theory / composition with Prof. Johannes Schild (2011 - 2015) and conducting with Prof. Rüdiger Bohn (2012 - 2016) at the conservatories Cologne and Düsseldorf. During his studies, he worked as a choir assistant at the Theater Krefeld-Mönchengladbach (2013 - 2016), then as a solo tutor with a conducting engagement in the Staatstheater Darmstadt (2016-2018). Since the season 2018/2019 he is engaged in the same function at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf.
Working with the vocals is particularly important to Jason Tran, and so he studied and accompanied singers on the piano long before he graduated. He also performs as a baritone soloist in recitals, concerts and opera performances.
As a conductor, he has previously directed the Bergische Sinfoniker, the Darmstadt State Theater Orchestra, the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker and Duisburger Symphoniker, the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie Koblenz, the Neue Philharmonie Westfalen, the Orchestra of the Robert Schumann University Düsseldorf and the Satu Mare Romanian State Philharmonic.
He received composition and arranging assignments, among others, from the literary opera Cologne, the Deutschlandfunk and the HfMT Cologne.
Even today, Jason Tran is a versatile pianist, conductor, composer and singer.
