Voice - Session 3
Estefanía Cuevas Wilcox, a native of Medellín, Colombia, serves as voice faculty in the David L. Walters Department of Music at Jacksonville State University. She holds a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of New Mexico and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Jacksonville State University.

Mrs. Cuevas Wilcox was awarded an Eileen Southern Fellowship by the American Musicology Society, as well as the Latin American Music Fellowship by the Center of Southwest Research in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Through her work at the CSWR, she shared presentations and performances to foster connectivity between special music collections, spaces, social media, and performance. Mrs. Cuevas Wilcox collaborated with the New Mexico Philharmonic in the performance of Zarzuelas! Rediscovered Romance, a revival of the obscure works of Argentinean composer Manuel Areu compiled by conductor Javier Lorenzo and the UNM Honors Research Institute. She has also served as a community outreach liaison for Opera Southwest, performing at local venues alongside lectures to promote the art form of opera.

Her operatic training includes the performance of several roles, such as Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Juliette in Romeo et Juliette, Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, and Jenny in Ned Rorem’s Three Sisters Who Are Not Sisters. She has been named second-place prize winner through the Birmingham Music Guild Scholarship Competition, and has won first and second place through both state and regional NATS competitions. As a voice instructor, her pedagogical interests lie upon the incorporation of speech language pathology models for the training and rehabilitation of the singing voice.

Mrs. Cuevas Wilcox currently enjoys teaching voice and music appreciation at JSU, as well as private voice and piano students through the JSU Music Academy—a community-serving institution that seeks to provide quality music instruction for students of all ages.
