Carmen-Helena Tellez


Carmen-Helena Téllez is professor of conducting, director of the graduate choral conducting program, and associate director for performance in the Sacred Music at Notre Dame program. A multifaceted artist, she takes a co-creative approach to new music performance, devoting special attention to vocal-instrumental and staged genres, involving interdisciplinary media and musical scholarship, in an approach that The Washington Post has called “immersing and thrilling.” With a grant from the Mellon Foundation, she is now developing broadly conceived "sacred music dramas" to explore important humanistic and social topics by means of immersive and interactive performances.
