Jason C. Tramm

Assistant Professor and Director of Choral Activities

College of Communication and the Arts


Dr. Tramm is a highly acclaimed conductor of opera, choral/orchestral masterworks, and orchestral repertoire.

I have a broad range of experience in both the professional and academic musical worlds. I draw upon this inspiration to provide fully realized musical performances that engage the performers to perform to the best of their abilities, both technically and emotionally. I view the art of conducting as the synthesis of technique and a life time of study to fully interpret the intention of the composer.
