Guest Artist Guerrero to present lecture-recital: 'Canciones de Latino América'

Submitted by the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance


Lily Guerrero, assistant professor of voice and director of vocal pedagogy at the University of Texas at Austin Butler School of Music, will present a lecture-recital: "Canciones de Latino América," at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, in All Faiths Chapel.

The event is part of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance's IDEALL Week.

The daughter of Mexican and Cuban immigrants, Guerrero's research focuses on advocating for Latinx voices in classical music, and she has received fellowship funding for this endeavor from the Society for American Music. She is sought out as a lecturer and panelist on the topic of diversity, equity and inclusion in the voice studio and serves as a member of the NATS DEI Task Force as well as the organizer for the NATS Latinx/Hispanic Teachers Affinity Group. Guerrero also contributes her knowledge of underrepresented composers as an art song advisor for Song Helix and the Institute for Composer Diversity, and she serves the local community as a teaching artist for Austin Opera. In the summer, Guerrero is on the voice faculty of the Atlantic Music Festival in Waterville, Maine. An activist-scholar, Guerrero’s research highlights the intersection of music and social justice in the United States.
