Briana Gillet

Graduate SAC Chair in Music


Hello all! My name is Briana Gillet (she, her, hers), and I am a 2nd-year doctoral student pursuing a DMA in Trumpet Performance at the School of Music. Originally from Bozeman, Montana, I moved to Salt Lake City last year and hold a Master of Music in Trumpet Performance. As a performer, I enjoy using extended performance techniques to explore the different ways we conceptualize sound, and how it can be transferred from a practice session to a performance setting. Passionate about interdisciplinary artistry, my goal is to pursue projects that showcase new ways in which artistic collaboration can be used to expand how we as musicians and artists approach our work and provide new audience experiences.
