For the health and safety of the Bienen School community and our valued patrons, this event has been canceled.

Born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam, An Tran is a “Vietnamese guitar virtuoso” according to Austin Classical Guitar. After winning first prize in the Vietnam National Guitar Competition at the age of 12, the internationally acclaimed guitarist went on to perform throughout North America and Asia, both as a soloist and a chamber musician. Most recently, Tran won first prize in the 2018 New Orleans International Guitar Festival Competition. Deeply connected to his native country of Vietnam, Tran is committed to bringing the traditional music of Vietnam to the international concert stage.
