Stephanie Reyes is an accomplished choral conductor and vocalist, having graduated with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Choral Conducting from Texas Tech University. During her time at Texas Tech, she was the conductor of Scarlet Voce and University Singers, associate conductor of University Choir, and director of the Opera Chorus. Alongside her conducting positions, Dr. Reyes taught Choral Conducting, Choral/Vocal Pedagogy, and private lessons for undergraduate vocal music education students.

Prior to Texas Tech, Dr. Reyes taught voice and choral instruction in Austin, Texas at Clavier-Werke School of Music, and founded/directed a semi-professional early music ensemble called Les Ancients. Her passion for early music led her to study historical performance practice in the renowned Jacobs School of Music, where she showcased her talent in productions like J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion and participated as a soloist in the Bloomington Bach Cantata Project.

Dr. Reyes's research is rooted in her passion for diversity, inclusion, and interdisciplinary collaboration. She has written on revitalizing classical music by forging connections between students and audiences through a dynamic blend of diverse repertoire, technology, and multimedia techniques that create impactful concert experiences. In recognition of her innovative vision, she was awarded an Arts in Action grant in 2022 to produce and conduct an interdisciplinary choral concert for Grace Campus Homeless Shelter in Lubbock, Texas.

Outside of her conducting, Dr. Reyes has excelled as a vocalist, captivating audiences with her performances in large-scale choral works like Mozart's Requiem, Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil, Handel's Messiah, and Bach's St. John Passion. She holds a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance and a master's degree in Choral Conducting from Texas State University.

In addition to her musical endeavors, Dr. Reyes enjoys going on adventures in nature with her dog, playing video games, and attending art exhibits.
